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.
