Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) has dismissed rumors that the country is about to experience fuel shortage in the weeks to come due to on-going war in neighboring country, Mozambique.
MERA Public Relations Officer Fatima Khonje said the country has enough fuel to meet the demands despite the conflict ion Mozambique.
“We have insufficient storks for the economic activities to run properly so we would like to ensure the nation that there is no need for panic,” said Khonje.
Recently, Malawian fuel tankers have been subject of attacks by militants in Mozambique. About six cargo vehicles have been attacked by the militants in the neighboring country.
These attacks on Malawians by Mozambicans follow another attack which saw four men, who were among 24 Malawians traveling to South Africa on April 23rd, shot dead in Mozambique.
