Director Kleeme indicates that the ministry has planned to conduct an inspection of eligibility certificates to ensure that used or new cars dealerships, auto parts stores and other transport-related businesses are legally established consistent with laws.

“These exercises are geared toward ensuring that vehicles and or other transport-related businesses are duly registered by law as well as generate revenue purposes.” He explains.
