Taxi fares will decrease to the normal rate effective from midnight on Thursday following an increase put in place to subdue the economic impact of the COVID-19 restrictions, Justice Minister Yvonne Dausab said during the Presidential COVID-19 briefing on Wednesday. This after a temporary increase of 15% had been put in place on all bus and taxi fares during lockdown. Future Media News contacted the president of the Namibia Transport Taxi Union, Werner Januarie, who reacted angrily to the announcement.
