  6. Fuel and Electricity are ensential commodities, any increase affect all other products and commodities of goods and services. It is just logical that they have increased due to increase on fuel, expect some more upwards adjustments should electricity tarifs also increase.

  15. Is the writer sure with the figures? Is it kr 6 or k6 for local routes and kr 150 for inter mine routes; this sounds too high!

    • The point is that bus fares will be increased. Any increase in price of goods and services hurts the tax payers most. That’s what is important to note here. Increases in Ministers’ salaries also hits the tax payers under the belt. An increase in cabinet portfolios hits the tax payers most. But ultimately the same tax payers voted an illiterate government in office with no clue as to how to run a vibrant economy of Zambia. So let them bear the brunt for their foolish voting.

    • Hear CB, Hear! The worst is yet to come. Cb, You are reaping what you sowed. listen. The K20Bn per by-election is what you are paying for. CB, you are paying salaries and fuel for the over 80 Ministers. Imagine you are even paying for Munkombwe’s salary, a loser, a geriatric who pounced on the hapless youth’s job. Now you will have to wait for new mealie meal prices. You were forewarned and did not listen. REAP WHAT YOU SOWED FOOLISH VOTERS!
