President Edgar Lungu(l) swears in Matthew Nkhuwa as Minister of Works and Supply during the Swearing in Ceremony at State House

Government has reiterated its commitment towards the provision of high quality and affordable fuel through its cooperating partners.

Minister of Energy Mathews Nkhuwa said government has engaged the Saudi Arabia government to supply high quality but cheap fuel to Zambia.

He was speaking  today when he launched the National Consumer Fuel promotion co-hosted by Puma Energy and VISA in Lusaka.

Mr. Nkhuwa has hailed VISA and PUMA Energy Zambia for coming together in promoting the usage of visa cards at its 45 out of 57 service stations countrywide when buying fuel.

He has since urged the banks to encourage their clients to use Visa cards as they carry out transactions.

Meanwhile, Puma Zambia Managing Director Yahaya Yunusa said using the visa cards when buying fuel at Puma service stations is the fastest and safer way of buying fuel by motorists.

Mr. Yunusa explained that over 1 billon US Dollars is transacted in service stations countryside per year, hence Puma Energy has come on board to ease the burden.

He pointed out that his firm remains committed to offering the best service to its clients.

And Visa Zambia Country Manager Salome Makau said using a visa card is a secure way of making payments unlike petty cash.

The Eight week win free fuel with Puma and Visa promotion runs from today to the 8th of April 2018.

    • @ The Observer, when did you become PF?? You have Joined the Government of thieves when fuel is cheaper per barrel only is Zambia is it increased. WE have a serious problem that our leaders have no strategic plans to reduce the cost of living for our people. Lungu should be Inculpated he has failed with performance GRADE 0 (Poor Performer).


    • “high quality but cheap fuel”

      Is there such a thing? Price is driven by quality!

      This only happens in street vending language… ain’t such a thing.

      Why can’t African come together with a binding MoU to operationalise Sudan oil to start supplying Africa so that money remains in Africa.

      It’s time to move a motion across African parliaments.


  1. Remember the first promise as articulated by Amos Chanda about two years ago about the same Saudi Arabia oil? That never happened. Is this another ride we will be taken on again? time will tell.
