why 5 years minimum
Because the rate of depreciation reduces with time. The best bus to buy ni bus imekaa roady for 2 or 3 years but it must be mechanically sound. Hapa it has depreciated significantly in price, but it has no mechanical issues. Shida ni, hakuna mtu atakuuzia bus kama hiyo juu ile bei anapata atakuwa anaona tu heri kulima nayo juu returns hazijaachana na za bus mpya na mbali. So the next best option ni kubuy mpya na uhakikishe umelima nayo for long juu the first two years pesa yote ni loan na depreciation. From the third year ni faida sasa. Mtu alibuy bus mpya 2012 alimaliza loan by 2014 na saa hii ndio cost za kurepair zimezidi so lazima auzie newbie.

Tricky business, very tricky, everyone earns except the owner, most of the times.
Look at it this way, if you make 10k per day, the driver takes say assuming 2k, conductor 1k, you remain with 7k, service is on you every week, cost about 4k or 5k.
If you make the same gross amount, and cops get your car, the staff get their Same amount but yours is reduced to pay the cops.
I don't know how to tell you this but, this biz is not for the weak...

True. It also demands a Wakanyama-type personality, mtu kichwa ngumu design fulani who is ready to fight it out with cops, makangas, mechanics and whoever comes between him and his $$. In short, haitakangi mtu sio street-smart ama mtu softie.
