Government has attempted to clarify the fuel shortage which has hit some parts of the country.
Energy Permanent Secretary, George Zulu has attributed the fuel shortage to a burst on the TAZAMA pipe line which happened at a place called Ilinga in Tanzania.
He says the government of Tanzania has since repaired the pipe burst and Indeni oil refinery in Ndola has started receiving crude oil.
Mr. Zulu has assured the general public not to worry as the fuel shortage is temporal.
A check by MUVI TV news around some filling stations in Lusaka found several motorists stranded while some isolated stations had the commodity.
