Flash Buses drivers cry foul over conditions

About 280 drivers working for Flash Buses in Lusaka have cried foul over unexplained deductions from their K2,000 monthly salaries by management at the company.

But when contacted for a comment, Flash Buses owner Ishmeal Kankara said the drivers’ claims are not justified because they have not directly complained to him.

According to the payslips made available to Zambia Daily Mail, deductions come from fuel, shortages and possible road traffic accidents.

When deductions are effected every month, the drivers sometimes take home as little as K100. The drivers, who claim they have no contract, say they have nowhere to voice out their concerns for fear of being fired https://enews.daily-mail.co.zm/welcome/home

  1. Sons of my mother, enlighten me, I may be off touch with realities on the ground in my motherland. What exactly can you buy with that money? The rent, Milie meal, electricity, transport for school going children, relish just to mention but a few. With some of us bad habit – Beer! surely these company owners should feel for us. That amount translates into R1100, ( 1100 Rands)if my arithmetic serves right.

  2. THIS IS THE SAME WITH INDIAN OWNED TRUCKING COMPANIES. TAKE A SURVEY AND YOU WILL WANT TO CRY OVER HOW THESE ZAMBIAN TRUCK DRIVERS ARE TREATED. THEY HAVE ALL THESE DEDUCTIONS LIKE BROKEN SPRING, TYRE BURST, ETC ETC EVEN WHEN THESE SPARES HAVE WORKED ON THE TRUCKS FOR SO MANY YEARS ON TOP OF THE INSULTS THEY RECEIVE AS IF THEY ARE CHILDREN. NO WORKERS RESPECT. BUT AS USUAL INDIGENOUS ZAMBIANS ARE BUSY FIGHTING ( PHD SYNDROME) WHILST THE OTHERS ARE BUSY MISTREATING WORKERS AND THERE IS NO ONE TO TALK FOR THEM.
