President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government held an emergency meeting over the country’s worsening fuel crisis on Wednesday.
Permanent secretary in the ministry of Energy and Power Development, Gloria Magombo, confirmed the meeting when contacted by the Daily News. Said Magombo:
Government is taking measures and we are having a meeting today (Wednesday) to address the issue.
Business leaders said the government needed to prioritise their needs, as companies were losing many precious hours of production due to the fuel shortages. Confederation of Zimbabwe Retailers (CZR) president, Denford Mutashu, was among the business leaders who appealed to the government for fuel allocations, so that commerce and industry would not be incapacitated.
