In an interview on the sidelines of the just ended 2019 Parliamentary pre-budget seminar in Bulawayo, Energy and Power Development Minister Joram Gumbo said Zimbabwe has enough fuel supplies for the forthcoming festive season.
Gumbo said his ministry has requested the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to increase the weekly fuel import allocation to $35 million from $20 million. Said Gumbo:
As we go into the festive season, there is enough fuel, what we need to look for is just forex. We have requested RBZ to bring it up to about $35 million a week from $20 million because the price of fuel on the international market keeps going up and down.
