Oct 21, 2010 News Comments Off on Minibus operators thrown out of meeting with Home Affairs Minister
The route 50 minibus operators were thrown out of a meeting last Sunday. This meeting was being held at the Regional Administrative office in Berbice, with Minister Clement Rohee.
Keith Alfred, president of the route 50 minibus association, told Kaieteur News that after they heard that the Minister was holding a meeting with minibus operators they decided to attend.
It was while being there that they were asked by persons in authority to leave the gathering.
The president later found out that the meeting was being held only to accommodate the route 63A minibus drivers.
Alfred also noted that for months they have been making efforts to reach with Minister Rohee to highlight their problems.
Several weeks ago the said operators took to the street and protested the change in their rout regulation.
As it was, the drivers were allowed to ply the New Amsterdam to Georgetown route but later saw that regulation being changed.
Kaieteur News was made to understand that prior to the last protest, the route 50 minibus drivers were allowed to ply the New Amsterdam to Georgetown rout but later saw their road service license due date being brought forward.
It was initially due to expire on December 31, but some how the due date was brought forward, which the drivers were angry over.
