The government said that there will be adequate fuel during the Independence and Easter holidays.
The Minister of Information, Monica Mutsvangwa told a post-Cabinet media briefing that 20 million litres have been injected. Said Mutsvangwa:
The Minister of Energy and Power Development informed Cabinet that measures have been taken to ensure that there will be adequate fuel supply with an injection of 20 million which has been uplifted as from last night (Tuesday night).
This means there will be enough fuel in the country as we go towards Easter and Independence holidays.
There will be enough fuel for all to attend independence celebrations and also for those who may want to travel for Easter.
Energy and Power Development Minister Joram Gumbo said that the 20 million litres would augment current supplies. Said Gumbo:
Our daily consumption of fuel at the moment is about three million litres of diesel per day and two million litres of petrol per day.
The 20 million litres injection which started to be uplifted as from last night is an addition to the already or normal fuel that we normally receive in the market.
As far as we are concerned, people must be able to enjoy the holidays without any hitches.
