Honiara City Council (HCC) will register only 30 buses to service the capital.
This is the Honiara City Mayor Hon Andrew Mua’s response to the massive turn out of bus owners, drivers and conductors in protest yesterday at the Honiara City Council compound.
But, responding to the Mayor’s decision, a concerned bus owner said HCC must make sure the 30 available spaces must be given to local bus owners.
He said some of the buses in Honiara are owned by Chinese businessmen and that HCC must make good decisions in favour of local bus owners.
The concerned bus owner said, “the Chinese have already engaged in other business ventures such as shops and restaurants as such it is will be totally unfair if these people are also dominating the bus service in Honiara.”
