Government is committed towards providing high quality affordable fuel


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 this 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.


  1. Every time it’s leap service, when are you going to walk the talk. Boss your fuel is very expensive. You keep singing the economy is doing well, when are we going to feel the impact?

  2. It would be gratifying to see Government cut off middle men in the procurement of fuel. If they cannot do this then let them reintroduce fuel subsidies.

  3. Getting rid of middle men when procuring the oil from the source is a good idea. even here in Zambia there many con men whom we should target to rid of. What role does the ERB play in Zambia besides paying the big bwanas salaries with personal to holder vehicles? this is a very big cost being borne by the people of Zambia. What other technical issues does the ERB handle? All that we know is increasing prices of energy be it electricity, fuel etc. Zambia could even be better off without this demonic institution.
