In an interview, NRFA public relations manager Alphonsius Hamachila, however, explained that the K8 billion figure being quoted were for the period between when the first toll gate was opened up to last year.

“Note that the K2.8 billion is the money that had been collected from all toll plazas including weigh bridges from 2013 to 2018,” Mr Hamachila said.

He also said the K100 million collected from the Shimabala Toll Plaza in Kafue district was the total amount since the facility became operational in 2017.

Mr Hamachila further challenged the public to always counter check the figures for the toll fees with the agency to avoid misinforming the public.
