The number of passengers using Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) in Naivasha has dropped sharply after matatu operators hiked their fare.

The most affected are flower farm workers who have been forced to walk to their work place following the recent rise in the cost of fuel.

This came as area residents lashed out at the Kenya Kwanza government for failing to take the skyrocketing cost of living.

Matatu and motorcycle operators in the lakeside town have increased their fare by between Sh50 and Sh200 depending on the routes.

According to Mwaura Mwangi from Satima Sacco, many passengers were seeking alternative means of transport following the rise in fare.

He attributed this to the recent increase in fuel prices by the government noting that this had affected all the sectors.

“We have noted a sharp drop in the number of passengers and we hope that the current crisis will be addressed in the coming days,” he said.
