Bus operators in Lundazi District servicing local routes have hiked bus fares by 5 Kwacha rebased.
A check by Breeze News today at the bus station found most buses for local routes displaying new bus fares on their windows.
A further check revealed that people travelling to the furthest point in Chief Magodi’s area were now paying 30 Kwacha rebased from the previous 25 Kwacha rebased.
The new fares, were approved by Lundazi Bus Association and signed by a man only identified as Mr. Chaya.
And some bus operators talked to told Breeze News that the hike is followed by the unexpected increase of fuel by government last week.
But Lundazi District Council Secretary Magubwi Simunkolomba says that he was not aware of the hike made by local bus operators.
Mr Simunkolomba says that there is need for bus operators to convene a meeting with RTSA, the Road Transport and Safety Agency and described the move as illegal.
