Anna Kashona – First Female Top Taxi Winner

Anna Kashona caused quite a stir when she was announced as the latest Top Taxi driver in the capital on Friday. Being a woman in a typically male dominated industry has not discouraged Anna in the least.

“I enjoy driving my taxi and it’s been a good source of income for my family,” she said at the weekly Top Taxi prize giving ceremony held on the Kosmos Radio promotional balcony on Friday morning.

Since she started driving a taxi just over a year ago, she has not received any fines and this, she says, is easier than everyone thinks. “If you just obey the rules and make sure to be considerate of other drivers, you won’t have problems on the roads.”

She drove off with a new Standard Bank account loaded with N$3 000 and an assortment of prizes including a Bible, an Auto Armour car care kit and a First Aid Kit.

Top Taxi is a Kosmos Radio initiative and is made possible through the assistance of the Windhoek City Police, Standard Bank, Shoprite, NMC and The Namibian newspaper.

The competition is still open for taxi drivers in the capital. All you have to do is get an entry form in a copy of The Namibian newspaper. Fill it in and drop it off at Shoprite in Windhoek’s CBD or at the Lafrenz money market outlet.
