A fuel service station in Mufakose is reportedly rejecting swipe and mobile money payments, demanding bond notes.
Motorists are now calling on the government to withdraw Maps Service Station’s operating licence. A motorist who spoke to ZBC News said:
They are demanding cash, they have been collecting cash since morning and now they have closed but fuel is available.
In a telephone interview with ZBC News, Director of the Service Station Bowas Mapiro said their fuel is not subsided by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ). He said:
Our fuel is not RBZ fuel it is not subsidized we pay our dealers in foreign currency.
