Cabbies Run Riot Over Rise in Fares

TAXI drivers in the Tamale Metropolis yesterday took to the streets to protest the five per cent increase in fares instead of the 10 per cent they are demanding.

They said they would not return to business until the fares are doubled because five per cent to them is too low.


The protesters mounted roadblocks in the central business area of the metropolis and other principal streets to prevent their colleagues and other commercial drivers from using the roads.

The Police and the Military led by the Northern Regional Commander Ephraim O. Barakutu had to intervene when some of the striking drivers started damaging things, including tables, chairs and other items belonging to the GPRTU branch at the main taxi station. They also smashed windscreens of other taxis.
