Via GuinéeConakry.info: CARRIER STRIKE: Traffic paralyzed Conakry. This could have implications for transportation of medical supplies and personnel battling Ebola. Excerpt from a Google translation:
In recent days, the strike notice had been relayed by some private radio stations in place, but obviously very few people seriously believed. Also, the population of Conakry were somewhat surprised by the effectiveness of the strike called by the National Federation of Motor Carriers and General Mechanics of Guinea. Massively out early this week, citizens remained massed for a good part of the morning at the main crossroads of the Guinean capital.
Freely obedient to the word order release or acting as a precaution, taxi drivers and minibus deserted roads of the Guinean capital. On the axis of Fidel Castro highway, traffic is exceptionally fluid. Personal vehicles are more visible than the noisy yellow taxis.
