Bus fares go up by KR 30 in Eastern Province


Bus operators in Eastern province have increased fares by K30 on the Lusaka route following the removal of subsidies on fuel by government.

A check by ZANIS at Kapata bus station found that bus operators were charging KR 150 instead of the KR120 fare from Chipata to Lusaka.
Buses such as Johabi, Kapekele, Zambia Malawi and Juldan had already displayed the new bus fares.The increment of bus fares caught most villages unaware leaving some stranded.

And a small scale farmer in Mgubudu area expressed concern over the removal of fuel subsidies which he claimed would impact negatively on farmers as they ferry their produce to markets.

Elias Chirwa noted that the increase on transport would strain farmer’s financial strength adding that farmers would continue to be vulnerable because the cost of transportation would be high.


  1. Sata and his PF corrupt leaders are busy barking like DOGS, while Zambia SUFFERS as if there is no leader.

    Sata should know that, even Kadaffi of Libya used his intelligence agents to torment Libyans but he was killed

    Sata is busy tormenting innocent LEGITIMATE Chiefs like Mwamba & instructing his ritual killers like PF Ngoma to terrorise Zambians.

    I really love what am seeing coming to Sata and his evil henchmen & his family tree relatives in his GOVT
    Zambians wont spare u guys, they are angry because they are HUNGRY from lack of Money & FOOD which they cannot afford

    Policemen, Soldiers, Intelligence officers, Guards, poor people are all suffering & dying! The only people who are not suffering is Sata and his PF criminals leaders like LUO & Chief INJUSTICE Lombe…
