The communique also referenced that increment in fuel products, spare parts, and the poor economic management has dwindled the revenues of players in the transport industry.

Electricity tariffs, water tariffs, Prices of spare parts, prices of food and Pure water prices have all increased, hence we have no option than to also increase our fares,” the statement added.
