Fuel shortage should be resolved-ZAM

Share

Zambia Association of Manufacturers (ZAM) has raised concerns on the fuel shortage in some parts of the country.

ZAM Vice president, Chipego Chileshe says the situation will affect the transportation of raw materials and finished products around the country.

She said the current situation should be resolved as soon as possible in order to reduce the adverse impact not only on production processes but also on distribution and retailing of products.

In a separate interview, Economic Analyst, Chibamba Kanyama said the current fuel shortage situation in some parts of the country will disrupt the level of production.

Mr Kanyama said fuel shortages will affect the mobility of products such as agricultural produce which are supposed to be consistent in production.

“We should not have an artificial induced disruption such as fuel when we are trying to maximize output at this time, when COVID-19 is destroying the economy,” he said.

  2. The fuel shortage is one of the signs of a failing government. High exchange rate causes either high fuel prices or shortage of fuel. This government has opted for the latter for the time being.

  3. Let Zambians be empowered to run the fuel supply chain. As long as foreigners continue at this rate, there will be no Zambia to talk about.

  4. When the country had a fuel shortage Levy Mwanawasa demoted his distant cousin Minister of Energy George Mpombo to Copperbelt deputy minister. Since Mwanawasa knew fuel is the engine for economic development, he wasted no time

  5. But global oil prices were under $30 pb 6 months ago , didn’t this lungu lead PF GRZ plan and use those low oil prices ??

    I dought it , they are a very du.ll GRZ without forward planning , no strategy.

  6. AS A BORN AGAIN TOO LETS ALL JOIN OUR FRIEND KZ AND PRAY FOR THE FUEL SHORTAGE TO END
    THE LORD DID SAY ASK AND I SHALL GIVE
    SO HELOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  7. Let Mwanawasa rest in peace. What PF has achieved when he left this country and if allowed to come for two minutes would be shocked. The Lusaka he left is so different to what it is now. What Zambians need now is mindset change and not based on ethnic orientation. in all ramifications the present Government has performed beyond their expectations. Tuletasha while we are still alive.
