The implementation of new laws for the transport sector continue sparking controversy among concerned parties as bus owners have threatened to strike.
The bus owners have said they will hold a strike to protest against the ban on traveling at night and standing passengers.
According to Transport Association of Malawi, the ban has affected the business for the buses in the country hence authorities need to reverse the decision.
The bus owners also faulted the decision to have buses not having standing passengers arguing a bus is allowed to have some passengers standing as per disclosed by manufactures.
They added that they were not consulted when the two bans were introduced hence they have opted to strike if government fails to reverse its decision on the buses.
Following a series of accidents, government ordered that no bus should be on the road after 10 pm.
Authorities also ordered that no passenger should be seen standing in a bus while traveling.
Earlier, minibus drivers and conductors went on to have ugly scenes as they rioted in protest of new laws that seek to curb accidents on Malawian roads.
