Following messages circulating on social media platforms on the increase of fuel prices, the Minister of Energy and Power Development Advocate Fortune Chasi has warned players in the fuel sector that selling fuel for prices as high as RTGS$7 is unacceptable.
“It is unacceptable for fuel players to insist on US dollar payments only. That is not compliant with their licenses. Remedial action will be taken” said the Minister.
The Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA) confirmed that government has not increased fuel prices, the current prices are to be maintained.
Minister of Energy and Power Development Advocate Chasi will give a ministerial statement on Thursday, the 30th of May on the state of energy sector.
