LL Motorists Panic In Anticipation For Dry Spells At Pump Stations
There is a mounting rush by motorists to fill their tanks in pump stations in anticipation of a dry spell. Our spot-checks in the city have revealed that the rush has been fueled by the fact that some filling stations in the city have been dry for two days.
According to our spot-checks, some filling stations in the capital city have run out of petrol.
In area 49 for instance, we found motorists scrambling for the commodity at Mount Meru filling station in Area 49.
Following the sudden turnout of customers at mount Meru filling station, one of the station's fuel attendants Zione Chavura has told us that the station has enough fuel in stock.
The panic is coming barely three days after Chief Executive Officer for the Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority Henry Kachaje dismissed fears of a looming fuel crisis as he gave an assurance that the country has adequate fuel in stock.
Kachaje pointed that the fuel shortages in some parts are due to logistical hiccups.
