GPRTU set to increase transport fares again as fuel prices surge

    On the back of this, Mr Imoro in an interview on JoyNews noted that the executives are deliberating on the percentage of adjustment to be made to the existing fares.


    He, however, mentioned that government has not engaged the Union on the recent price hikes at the fuel pumps.

    The Union’s Communications Head further blamed government for the frequent transport fare adjustment.

    “We came up with this strategy which would have helped, we wouldn’t have gotten to where we are today, because internally, we have created our taxes, levies, and margins of which we engaged government about.

    “If the government listened to us or was able to do something about it, we wouldn’t be here. So we need to do this to sustain our members,” he said.

    It’s been barely a month since GPRTU adjusted transport fares upwards .

    The Union on Saturday, February 26, increased fares by 15 percent.
