Delivery of fuel stock resumes

Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) says National Liquid Fuels and Gas Emergency Management are coordinating the process of replenishment of stock for fuel retail outlets which has resumed in the country.

Most filling stations in the country run out of fuel stock following the national wide demonstrations that professional truck drivers are holding against poor working conditions.

Through a press statement released on 1 October 2021, MERA says they have engaged Malawi Defence Force personnel and Malawi Police Services in the process.

“The Malawi Defence Force and Malawi Police Service are engaged in the distribution of fuel and providing controls at the retail outlets. The response to the fuel supply disruption is being coordinated by the National Liquid Fuels and Gas Emergency Management Committee (NLFGEMC) established under the National Liquid Fuels and Gas Emergency Response Plan developed in 2019,” reads the statement.

MERA has continued to reaffirm that the country has sufficient internal stocks, but has advised the general public to refrain from panic buying of fuel as it contributes to the disruption of the flow of fuel supplies.

People have been scrambling for fuel in the country’s filling stations since Thursday, September 30, 2021.
