Commuter bus operators halt services

From The Citizen Daily, Dar es Salaam

Commuter bus drivers plying the Igoma-Airport route yesterday refused to offer transport services after Mwanza city council ordered them to stop using bus stops in the city centre.

The drivers opposed the order saying it was unfair to them and their passengers.

Social and economic activities stopped for more than seven hours in the Lake Zone city after drivers protested the city council’s order by blocking Nyerere road and forcing other drivers to stop and abandon passengers.

Upcountry buses were also delayed after all roads were blocked in the city causing confusion to passengers and traders in the area.
