Bus drivers complain about piracy

Bus drivers have expressed their frustration with piracy to Prime Minister, Doctor Kenny Anthony, at a meeting with him recently.

The President of the Southern Minibus Association, Marcellinus Faisal, has said that piracy is one of the main problems affecting members of the association.

Faisal accused the police of doing nothing to stop the practice.

He explained that the Prime Minister at the meeting in Vieux Fort with executive members of the National Council on Public Transportation (NCOPT), promised to look into the matter.

The Prime Minister promised to meet with the Commissioner of Police to ensure that the law is enforced, Faisal disclosed.

He said the meeting also discussed the matter of concessions for bus drivers.

“They already giving us sixty percent and the government said they cannot give us more than they giving us now, 60 percent on new vehicles,” Faisal said.

In addition the President of the Southern Minibus Association recalled that at the meeting with Prime Minister Anthony, bus drivers asked for lay-bys to be constructed on the Vieux Fort route starting from Praslin.

He observed that it is dangerous for bus drivers to stop on the road to pick up passengers.

Faisal also noted that lay-bys have been built along the Gros Islet route.

    These damn bus drivers are just too greedy. They always want more only thinking of themselves. The more they see people not getting any work and the public most of them not working. Who is able to pay an increase in bus fair. They need to realize that pretty soon no one will be able to pay bus and their bus will have to carry mangoes to the market.
