We all know that nowadays students hang around a lot at the bus rank after school. They chill there chatting with other students from different schools, for some it’s a chance to see their boyfriends and girlfriends. I don’t have a problem with this, I mean after all school can be very stressful so they might as well chat the stress away at the bus rank. However, they are some relationships that develop at the bus rank that I don’t agree with. These relationships are between young girls and combi drivers and conductors (nowadays they call themselves cashiers by the way). I totally despise these relationships not because these are just combi drivers and conductors but because of the reasons that these relationships develop.

A couple of weeks ago I was at the bus rank boarding a combi to go home. I saw something that led me to write about this week’s article. A school girl got into a private car with two guys, guess who the two guys were. Yes, it was a combi driver and a conductor of a combi that the girl usually takes when going home after school. I know that you might be saying that I am just being ridiculous and jumping to conclusions but even a blind old lady could see that there was nothing innocent about the ride. I then wondered what the two guys were going to do with the school girl but I could only come up with only one sensible and definitely obvious answer. They were going to use the girl.

I think by now you should have noticed that I do a lot of thinking, and yes I do have a very good memory. So I thought back when I used the same combi as this young girl, the combi was driven by the same guys who took her. One thing that I never used to understand was why she always sat in front, choosing the music that everyone in the combi would be listening to and most striking, she never pays.
Obviously me being a young passenger I was always jeolous, le nna kana ke a bo ke batla free ride. Then I figured that this is the reason why a lot of young girls actually get involved with combi drivers and conductors.
We all know that saving money in any way is important to all of us. So for a school girl what a better way to save money by getting free rides to school and after school?
Now guys, I’m not saying that all combi drivers and conductors are like this but a lot of them are. If at all you are in such a situation whereby you have made yourself available to a driver or a conductor for free rides, please stop that now. Rather look at it this way, are you really worth P2.70? I don’t think so.

When i was in Senior School i used to share a desk with this girl who used to date a combi conductor,or should i say “cashier”. She used to tell me wild stories about this guy. Guess what,now she has a child with a truck driver. Bottom line,dont ever compromise yourself because it only gets worse!


Eish mathata mmata.


yeah sometimes it depends on how that kind of gul was raised. a gona gore re tla ba reng. if u i a guy a try to give a free advise to ur poor sister it sims like u i jealous

That’s why we need special school buses! Councils can make some money this way while keeping our sisters and little ones in general safe! Especially from praditors like these! This really sucks! What future will these kids have then? Damn! We need government school buses, period!


tlogelang bana ha ole 17 or 18 o godile,le lona le hetile hoo..aah


jopas,a ruri o nale monnaowe,i gues u a las born,nako tsa rona dipalo tsa mogare di ne di ise di oketsege jaana,lyf style ya malatsi a e botlhoko cz its btwn lyf n death.


a lot hould be done by everyone especially at government level. these young school girls are the future of Botswana & if nothing is done, I’m afraid, we are losing the future of Botswana. why in the first place are those kids allowed to roam around the bus rank for no good reason. when we knock off after work we are stranded for transport yet those school children should have gone home earlier. I agree that special buses for school children should be a solution.


heish ke mathata, akere! but bontsi jwa nako ea bo e le go flirt fela mo go innocent, fale le fale ee ke gone go a bong go dirwa dilo.


this is really touching, go utusa botlhoko gape le rona borre ga re boi. we like using these kids…


that is nothing, come to Malaysia and explore what some of our sisters are doing with guys who are believed to have dollar(NAIJA boys). Disgrace…
