250-350km will consume about 2k of fuel, thats about 14k weekly. That dist is for a driver who has worked fir normal 8hrs, believe me that guy worked double that
Sikatai he may have worked double that. Thing is, even for your average matatu driver, 15hrs is not particularly unheard of.

What would be your estimate for cost of maintenance per month? Plus additional costs like inspection, tracking, insurance etc.
Inspection is once a year by NTSA. Not sure but I don't expect charges to be more than 2k.

Tracking siku hizi firms ni mob. Some you just got the gadget (check olx & FB for prices) and track yourself on your phone and/or comp.

For maintenance it's dependent on many factors. Either way, it shouldn't be difficult to find out the cost of your preferred engine oil, filters (air, fuel, oil), brake pads and 'shoes', labor costs, etc.

For insurance simply walk in to the various companies and make enquiries on the packages.

That's y they chew miraa. I have worked those kind of hours. On the 3rd day your body is kaput. You are like a zombie. Then, you have a life , eat , go home, shower, where do u get time for that. That makes your day 18-19 hours. Try functioning with 5 hours of sleep.
