Mo­torists must not hoard fuel

The Manica Post - - Local News -

ED­I­TOR — While there is panic buy­ing of fuel and queues get­ting longer by the day, peo­ple should ap­plaud ef­forts by the Min­istry of En­ergy and Power De­vel­op­ment to en­sur­ing that the precious liq­uid is avail­able at ser­vice sta­tions in the coun­try.

We see tankers al­most ev­ery day of­fload­ing fuel at ser­vice sta­tions, but queues keep in­creas­ing. Ser­vice sta­tions should al­low mo­torist to fuel up their ve­hi­cles.

Mo­torists must know that it is very dan­ger­ous to store fuel in houses. I know a num­ber of homes that were torched and razed when the fuel caught fire.

The il­le­gal for­eign cur­rency deal­ers must be li­censed so that all the forex out there be­comes part of fis­cus and finds its way to the bank of­fi­cially.

When il­le­gal gold deal­ers were li­censed, Fidelity Print­ers ben­e­fited a lot be­cause gold now find its way to the of­fi­cial buyer.

This could be a rem­edy to the for­eign cur­rency cri­sis the coun­try is cur­rently fac­ing.
