Minibus operators go on strike

Minibus operators have suspended their services following government’s failure to increase the current carrying capacity following the recent fuel hike.

Last week, Minibus Owners Association of Malawi (MOAM) wrote government to increase the carrying capacity to three people per seat from two, imposed as a Covid-19 preventive measure.

Following the development, public transport commuters in Blantyre City have been forced to walk to their respective work and business places.

But MOAM’s secretary general Coxley Kamange has asked the minibus operators to stop the strike and wait for government’s response on the matter.
