KINONDONI Municipal Mayor, Boniface Jacob, has ordered management of the new SIMU 2000 bus stand in Dar es Salaam to continue charging park fee of shilling 500 for commuter buses instead of the proposed 1000/-
He said in a statement issued today that the decision was reached because the Kinondoni full council did not endorse new park fee.
He blamed some few municipals official who announced to hike the fee, which caused panic to public since drivers threatened to demonstrate strike.
Boniface said stern measures would be taken against those involved to hike the fee without blessings from full council.
He urged both commuters and bus operators to make better use of facilities within the stand that would enable it stay long .
The new stand which commenced operation in 2014 has capacity of accommodating more than 200 buses at once which ply various routes in the city.
