©️ DESPERATE motorists are set to endure more anguish at fuel pumps, after authorities admitted at the weekend that they were struggling to get foreign currency to import petrol and diesel, the Daily News reports.
“The situation is that we have issues with foreign currency and the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) is working on that.“The government is working on various facilities to resuscitate lines of credit and also to look at the procurement of additional fuel.“I think in the next couple of weeks we will be announcing what has been achieved so far as there is a lot of work which is currently going on pertaining to the issue,” the permanent secretary in the ministry of Energy and Power Development, Gloria Magombo, told the Daily News.
Magombo confirmed the new arrangement to the Daily News yesterday, but denied that it had caused the deepening fuel crisis.
However, visits to the premises of some private players who used to import fuel using free funds showed that they did not have the product — except for service stations owned by one of the big companies, which were selling their fuel in foreign currency.
