Zim tanks running dry
100M LITRES IMPORTED LAST WEEK FAST DRYING UP, PARLY HEARS US senators say the new president is not producing the promised results.
Zimbabwe is running out of fuel, according to Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority’s acting CEO Eddington Mazambani. He told parliament on Thursday the $60 million (R850 million) worth of fuel imported last week would run out in two and half weeks’ time, Pindula news website said yesterday. “It came when we were at zero in terms of fuel supplies,” said Mazambani.
“$60 million buys about 100 million litres of fuel and it will be gone in two-and-a-half weeks ... and we do not know how much per week the Reserve Bank allocates to oil companies.”
Meanwhile, US senators said new Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa was saying the right things, but not producing real results.
