The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) says there are enough fuel supplies in the country to meet current demand as well as the approaching festive season.
In a statement on Sunday night, ZERA said diesel supplies remain normal, with the petrol situation expected to return to normalcy on Monday. The statement read:
The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) wishes to inform the motoring public that the country has adequate fuel supplies to meet the current demand, as well as the coming festive season.
The Authority notes that there was a downtime of the fuel terminal in Beira, due to repairs taking place at the port following damages caused by Cyclone Idai. Normal pumping then resumed on the 4th of December 2021.
The petrol situation in the country is expected to be restored to normalcy from Monday, 13 December 2021. The diesel situation remains normal.
The Authority is closely monitoring the fuel situation in the country and assures motorists that the country has adequate fuel supplies, and therefore no need to panic.
