BOR, 19 January 2016 [Gurtong]-Transport fares from Bor in Jonglei State to Juba has been hiked following the shortage of fuel in the country.

The fare has now increased from the usual 150 South Sudanese Pounds to 350 South Sudanese Pounds.

Marial Makhor, a driver for one of the Passenger Service Vehicles in Bor, told Gurtong that the prices of fuel have also been increased leading to the changes in the transport fares.

“The amount of money being paid for travelling from Bor to Juba has been increased highly by the drivers. The move comes as a result of the high prices of fuel in the stations in the market”, he explained.

Mr. Lual Agup who intends to travel to Juba says that the prices are exorbitant and residents cannot afford leaving travellers frustrated.

“The prices per jerry can [20 liters] in the stations increased to 650 South Sudanese pounds and that prompted the drivers to increase the bus fare for travellers”, he said.

“I better use river transport when I decide to go to Juba because I cannot afford such an amount of money levied on the citizens”, Agup stressed.

He is calling on the government to intervene and regulate the prices of fuel in the country.
