Ugandan bus companies that operate between Juba and Kampala have resumed business.
Last week, they downed their tools, protesting what they call double taxation by South Sudanese authorities.
They said that after paying levies at the Nimule border, authorities in Juba would impose the same taxes on them upon arrival at Shirkat.
However, the deputy chairman of Ugandan community in Gumbo – Odongo Moses – said they called off the strike after they reached a deal with the authorities.
“The buses are already coming and so we are hoping that (on Monday) all the buses will be coming. So far, we received like three buses yesterday,” he told Eye Radio.
The bus companies that were on strike include Friendship Coach, HMK Coach, and Simba Coach.
