Minibus Drivers and Conductors Association says it will continue lobbying for reduction in fuel prices in the country.
On Tuesday, the operators suspended their services to the public demanding government to either increase carrying capacity or revise down fuel price.
But government through the Ministry of Transport and Public Works denied bowing down to minibus operators’ demand to increase capacity to three people per seat saying two person per seat rule still stands.
Reacting to the move, chairperson for the Minibus Drivers and Conductors Association Chifundo Kandoje said government’s decision hugely affects their lives as they are failing to make profits and meet their bosses’ target.
“We will continue asking government to consider revising down the fuel prices but as of now we are still liaising how best we can go about it,” Kandoje said.
Meanwhile, minibus operators have resumed their services to the public.
