Long distance bus operators on the Chipata-Lusaka route are proposing to hike bus fares by between 20 and 50 Kwacha rebased.
This means that passengers travelling to Lusaka would now pay between 150 and 180 Kwacha.
One of the proprietors, Johabie Mtonga confirmed this in an interview with Breeze News yesterday.
He says that the bus operators were supposed to hike the fares by Friday last week, but following government’s directive, they have had to wait until further consultations.
And Synet Zulu, who is an operator for one of the buses, says that although the public may not gladly welcome these fares, they have no choice due to government’s decision to hike fuel prices.
