The Zimbabwean Government is arranging enough financing for the supply of fuel and the temporary stock-outs in the country will end in the next few days, Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube said yesterday. Fielding questions after yesterday’s Cabinet meeting, Prof Ncube said Government was on top of the situation.
Some service stations have been without fuel in the past few days, with queues in cities and towns. “We are aware of the hitches in the fuel supply on the market and this has to do with timing in terms of payments and supply of the commodity,” said Prof Ncube.
“I am happy to say that enough letters of credit and other payment forms have been arranged for the supply of fuel, but you get one or two types of delays logistically in terms of the delivery of the fuel. The issue should resolve in the next few days. We just hope we can be patient.”
