Bus fares to increase due to increment in fuel prices

The looming hike in bus fares has Lusaka commuters in shock and fear.

Some commuters have told Muvi TV news that the current bus fares are already unbearably high and that any upward adjustment will be hell.

Public service vehicle operators in Lusaka have indicated that they will soon convene with stakeholders on the possibility of increasing bus fares following this week’s increase in fuel prices.

On Thursday the Energy Regulation Board-ERB- announced the increase of fuel which shot up by 7.22 percent, diesel by 8.75 per cent and Kerosene by 9.45 per cent while the wholesale prices have been adjusted by 11.15 per cent.

Chanda Chimba warned Zambians that under PF there will be untold misery and suffering but instead he was arrested and is facing criminal charges.

Vice-president Guy Scott last week said Zambians are just beginning to enjoy the fruits of voting for PF.
