Fuel shortage hits Kasempa District

Rural News Fuel shortage hits Kasempa District

The fuel shortage in Kasempa district in North-western province has continued for a consecutive third week, now.

The district has had less fuel supply as the only filling station in the area was shut after a court order barred Vuma Petroleum Company from operating from the premise.

Kasempa district council secretary Evert Ngandu confirmed to ZANIS in an interview that as a result , the district operations have grossly been affected due to closure of the filling station.

Mr Ngandu said the crisis has been compounded by a business partnership conflict that has arisen between two named companies claiming ownership of the filling station.

He said according to documentation at the council, one of the companies in question has the offer letter of land from the ministry of lands allowing them to operate from the premise.

It is alleged that the same company engaged Vuma Petroleum Company to operate the filling station but later the rival company claimed ownership of the land.

Meanwhile most residents have resolved to pack their vehicles because of the exorbitant prices of fuel on the black market where a litter is selling at K 15 and a 20 litter container is going at K300.

Last week provincial minister Danny Chingimbu called for the re-opening of the filling station while it sorts out the wrangle.

  1. Where is ki Kabinga Pande, please let me warn everybody, Pande shouldn’t be adopted on any party ticket! Not even on Mulyokela’s. As for UPND, we should adopt Brenda Tambatamba, for Kasempa constuency. Kabinga doesn’t push for development agenda for Kasempa but only himself and his family. He is selfish. Kabwa.

  2. Where is this useless Kabinga Pande, kabwa, what are you doing about this problem. We will adopt Brenda Tambatamba on UPND ticket, and not this selfish old chap. Not even Mulyokela can entertain this pande. You are supporting UPND not for a position, forget.
