FRANCISTOWN: The Minister of Transport and Communications Tshenolo Mabeo says the government is fine-tuning regulations to govern the amount of carbon dioxide emission rates.

After officiating at the commissioning of the construction of the spaghetti road in Francistown, Mabeo told Mmegi that currently there is no law regulating emission rates from vehicle imports.

The lack of regulations has raised fears that some vehicles with high carbon emission rates might be entering the country undetected. Earlier, Mabeo told the gathering that there has been a notable increase of cars in the country.  “The Attorney General (AG) is currently working on correcting the draft of the regulations that governs emission rates from cars that would be allowed in the country. We (ministry) gave them the draft sometime ago,” Mabeo said.  He added that such regulations “will make sure that all cars coming into the country meet safety and environmental standards. Although I cannot commit to a date as to when the AG will finish its job on the regulations, I am hopeful that it will be soon”.
