Energy Regulations Board (ERB) offices

The Energy Regulation Board has today announced a sharp rise in fuel prices effective midnight tonight.

A litre of Petrol will now cost K13.70 up from K9.87 while a litre of Diesel will now cost K11.40, an increase from K8.59.

In a statement, the ERB attributed the upward adjustments to the volatility of the Kwacha which has fallen by 30 percent against the US dollar since the last price adjustment was announced in July 2015.

Below is the full statement from the ERB

  1. Even if UPND had won the 2016 elections, this increase was always inevitable. The mess needed someone to clean up. This mess was caused by Sata’s myopic economic policies. Had we retained the MMD government in 2011, we wouldn’t be in this quagmire. Up to now I still don’t understand why enlightened people voted for Sata in 2011. Lungu is just trying to clean up Sata’s mess, but he won’t say it publicly. That’s why you have seen staunch MMD people like my elder brother, Senior Citizen and many, who never supported Sata have now jumped in the PF ship.

    • There is absolutely nothing bewildering in this long overdue adjustment in the pump price. These commodities are procured in hard dollar currency and to expect staticity in price is subscribing to theories of the wishful society. It’s been triggered by Kwacha depreciation against the dollar in which world oil prices are denominated. No doubt this has some adverse impact yet it’s inevitable. Let’s ship in productivity and export of value added outputs to realize an export oriented economy with reduced imports. Our problems aren’t insurmountable.

      Let all the idl0ts given few pieces of silver by the crooked PF to beat UPND and hinder them campaigning feel it.

      Let all the tribalist who see no behold the tribe banye amensi!

      What a backward people to vote not on merit but based on tribal and money given through corrupt means.

      As for those relatives back home who were shouting ifintu ni Lungu, each time they cry ati insala,please send us money, i for one I just tell them to go and get more money from the thieving PF, I want them next time to vote using brains and not stupld tribe!!

    • Actually UPND was going to make it even worse because HH was going to go further and remove even the subsidies at once.

      On the 10th of October 2016, speaking from the veranda at his home, HH castigated the government for subsidising energy.

      He said the pf government was wasting a lot of money on subsidies on energy, money which could be used on other sectors of the economy.

      This means that people should be grateful that pf won the elections because HH was going to make the lives of Zambians even harder.

      The increase in the cost if fuel is just an adjustment that is reflective of the cost ratio in dollar terms.

      Remember that when purchasing the commodity, govt has to convert kwacha to dollar, and then sell back home in kwacha.

      Now, where the exchange rate move upwards…

      Hard times are coming for most honest Zambians.

      So I ask you all Zambians, ‘What is the meaning of the 52nd Zambian Independence when you are struggling to make ends meet’?

    • I do not believe in this notion of thinking PF have the best solutions to our economic challenges.So far they are not doing well.Surely another party could only do worse or better.To say even if UPND came to power nothing was going to change is like saying if another president won the US elections they could not have done better than Obama.Stop being short sighted.Our country needs sophiscated people who uunderstand how the world system works.Its not jsut about the balance of payments and some funny budget every year.We need a complete overhaul and people like Mutati who have failed to run small family businesses cannot take us anywhere.Mr.Lungu has made very very suspicious ministerial appointments which to me just imply he is not in a hurry to chage Zambia for the better.Thanks.

    • Sir you are very myopic in your analysis. Get to understand that it was Sata who removed the fuel subsidies which MMD perpetuated thinking they will return power nevertheless that never happened. Sata was a great leader not what we are seeing now. If the current leadership was bold enough this price hike would have been effected before the elections, but in the usual cowardice approach the current Goverment cheated the people.

    • All this rubbish going on in our lovely country the hall marks PF ‘s failure. ERB issues a statement which directly attributes the increase in fuel prices to Kwacha volatility which in turn is a result of Lungu and his stupid PF thugs ‘ rampant corruption, violence , murders and utter thieving.

      This is but just the beginning of dununa reverse. The massive dununa reverse is on its way very soon. Its gone be worse than Zimbabwe mark my words. After they steal all the IMF funds then where will they borrow next? No where but instead they will print bonds like Mugabe.

      By the way out of the IMF bailout Lungu wants to give Mugabe’s government $100million soft loan to help his mentor mitigate the effects of promisory bonds, rumour has it. I believe it absolutely true.

    • Let correct this stup1d assertion that even if even it was HH fuel price increase would be inevitable. HH would have used his credibility as an astute business man to negotiate a better deal with IMF and still borrow from the markets on favourable terms that have seen price rise gradually unlike these astonishing jumps we are witnessing under the f00lish PF. It must be emphasised how ever that all these actions would have to be taken to clear the mess caused by the inept PF

      No one is against the up ward fuel prices adjustments . But we are opposed to the 30% increase which which will also be increased by 25% after the IMF agreement.

      The truth ofthe matter is that this 30% fuel increase has about 15% levy in it that will be used to raise money to fund Lungu ‘s extra ministries…

  5. @the chosen one. You rewarded the PF by voting them back when in fact it was Sata AND his cabinet that messed up. His cabinet is still there and yet not held accountable. Those MMD stalwarts you are talking about are just tribalists who where willing to sit on the side and not support UPND. Your justification that UPND would have done the same shows your partiality. At least they did not make this mess and yet denied the opportunity, while those who messed up rewarded. Explain that to me please

    • @7 mabilafu,better to see the one who caused mess take the pain to clean it up. Yes this problem is on a greater part caused by PF’s unplanned borrowing and expenditures and it is also due to our reduced forex receipts due to reduced copper prices. We are in an inevitable situation where it makes little difference who won the August election. UPND would have even put us in more harm with an excuse of blaming everything on PF. At least in this case, the same key technocrats who know how they started the negotiations with IMF will complete them. In fact at election time,UPND was half full of PF former influentials,Guy Scott,GBM,Masebo,Miles,Mulenga Sata etc. All we need is government to engage with people and explain where it is coming from and where it is expected to end!!

All HH wanted was to take power and continue blaming PF for everything. At least PF will just have to explain why they had to accept a price increase in fuel and electricity after resisting it for over a year! HH and GBM had and will never have a magical solution to this! It is a path we have to tread as SINGLE COMMODITY BASED ECONOMY!!Many countries who commodity export prices have plummeted are experiencing this pain,Nigeria,Ghana,Angola,South Africa,Mozambique… so GBM and HH are no messiahs,only to those they hoodwinked.

    • Goodness with PF govt. compared to MMD is that they make BRAVE decisions; viz infrastructure development and now fuel price adjustment. I cannot compare UPND because they are still a virgin in terms of governing. They have never tasted it before…

  23. One of the major reasons why Underfive lost the elections was that he tried to spin a Sata-style gimmick that he will reduce the prices of mealie meal, fuel, electricity and yes even soap, while at the same time telling the voters that the economy was bad and the government ess broke and debt ridden. Total contradiction that Zambians ssw through and made last minute decisions to ensure that under five mever sees State House. People felt insulted actually, hence ba HH caba kalupa momba, balwala shick.ya kubwata bwata.

  24. A dizzy looking fella appeared on ZBNC TV. The headlines ”Polisi in Lukasa are pursuing three REB officials for increasing the price of fuel”. The fugitives whom the polisi have described as highly dangerous are believed to belong to the opposition UDPN. It is also believed that the UDPN in a named province has bought all the fuel in the country in order to cause a shortage and to increase the prices of the commodity. The chief gabana spooksman has meanwhile assured the people that the gabana will soon be making fuel from water in all the provinces.

  25. Actually UPND was going to make it even worse because HH was going to go further and remove even the subsidies at once.

    On the 10th of October 2016, speaking from the veranda at his home, HH castigated the government for subsidising energy.

    He said the pf government was wasting a lot of money on subsidies on energy, money which could be used on other sectors of the economy.

    This means that people should be grateful that pf won the elections because HH was going to make the lives of Zambians even harder.

    The increase in the cost if fuel is just an adjustment that is reflective of the cost ratio in dollar terms.

    Remember that when purchasing the commodity, govt has to convert kwacha to dollar, and then sell back home in kwacha.

    Now, where the exchange rate move upwards…

  30. It’s grobo don’t worry…..in the mean time sontapo HH as we were told.

    That is why lungu hates HH and is so afraid of him so much.

    UPND made them spend money they did not have. PF bankrupted the economy fighting UPND…..including 1.5 billion ZKW from toll gates gone missing.

    Eehhhhh lungu, even those ministers who were campaining for you illigally using public funds were stealing.

    It that why you can’t produce a budget. All your numbers don’t add up. You have spent the lot.

    Carry on dancing dunduna and calling prayers.

  31. The adjustment in prices was inevitable but ERB should also cut out the many middle men! What’s wrong with these people. Clearly they are not very clever. First clear out the middlemen so that if the price has to go up, it won’t be by a wide margin. ECL is surrounded be people that are more interested in thier pockets more than the masses.

  33. Its amazing how at every turn of events, HH is mentioned. Instead of having an economic plan or blueprint to stabilize the economy and produce wealth, PF cadres can only claim unashamedly and without any sensible reason or evidence, that HH would have been worse. Still burying your heads in the sand. You think an economy resolves itself? You spend recklessly and share the spoils and say ‘fyalaisolva’ or divert peoples attention by mentioning HH at every turn. The most alarming thing in all of this, for any reasonable person to see, is that PF have no clue as to where they are meant to take Zambia. Dancing to a stupid song like ‘dununa reverse’ is not a plan. People did not think (including Lungu) about what next, after they had danced themselves to a daze.

And I have more faith in Edgar handling my affairs than in HH. Imagine if the president was HH, I am certain that he would seeing personal business opportunities than looking at us all. Thank God he will NEVER be our President, they can keep him as president of UPND until he is 88 years old, I will not shed a tear.

But foolish Zambians got a witch doctor from Malawi to repair our economy. The whole economy wana gona lungula now starting from today. The imishindos like Terrible and peace for amafi will not be affected because they are enjoying un retired imprests,un counted for expenditures and all other forms of thieving with Patrick in eastern province and other Pro failure strong holds.

  40. Zambian people are always worried, that is why they voted for the opposition, but the big balls like peace for anus and Terrible ass stole our votes. The Pfools culture of theft as you have seen in the Auditor General’s report does not only end in funds pilferage, it involves every thing including votes. Otherwise we shall embrace our selves for putting monkeys in our maize field.

    • Don’t worry much, it will be done gradually. This is tough reality but it is necessary. As I said earlier ‘This is reality and it is ok, time to work extra hard now and HARNESS, EXPLOIT and PROFIT from our resources’ (I was listening to Rev. Walter Mwambazi on radio last evening as I lined up to fill my 80L car fuel tank for brief relief before ‘mid-night tonight’)

  42. The kaponyas are wondering how more than half of zambians voted for HH.

    Most zambians who voted for him looked at his cv. He is a successfull business man.

    As for lungu on his cv before politics he represented criminals like fawaaz and did not win a single case.
    Also what stands out on his cv is his conviction for fraud.

    • Opposition MPs shall boycott parliament and do a sit-in outside Parliament building in protest against Fuel price increase.

      The kind of money wasted by PF government (Auditor General’s Report) K350 million could have gone to cater for the price increase that ERB is blaming on Instability of Kwacha.
      The kind of money wasted on sick Sata (he was taken to USA, India, Korea, Israel and London) 31 times during his 3 years rule. Total expenditure on big entourage that accompanied him on these medical trips was $103 million.
      Mr. Lungu’s has followed in the footsteps of his mentor and has travelled overseas 19 times during his 21 months rule since January 2015. Total expenditure on his trips is $46 million.

  47. Flash back…

    President Lungu’s economic diplomacy has continued yielding results. He is currently in Saudi Arabia where he is signing big deals that include:

    1. Construction of a mordern maternal and paediatric hospital. This initiative started under Dr. Kaseba. Madam Esther Lungu picked it up and now it is being finalised.

    2. Oil deals which will see the cost of fuel go down to as low as K5. 5. per litre. Negotiations have been going on and finally the deal will be signed……

    Add also 500 000 jobs lungu was to create in 2016….

    There you have it pipo. Don’t belive not a single word PF say……

  51. @Chosen one
    Point is correction: UPND won the election 11/08/16 and not PF. The methodological approach to doing things between UPND and PF is way apart. While UPND uses knowledge and skills PF uses copying tactics from failed states like Zimbabwe and Uganda, moreover, copying blindly as to why those countries are involved in crude national management.
