Fake news: Public transport fares have not been reduced

(Togo First) - Transportation fares have not been reduced in Togo. The rumor circulating on social networks over the past few days was denied by the government. 

The claims are “purely manipulative,” reads a joint statement issued by the ministry of transport and the ministry of trade and promotion of local consumption. “Tariffs for transporting people and goods in the country are the same set by inter-ministerial decrees. Failing to use these tariffs is punishable by law,” the statement adds. 

Thus, despite the reduction in fuel prices at the pump, fares are the same. However, due to the pandemic, authorities have reduced the number of passengers that can board public transport vehicles.
