Motorists across the country continue to scramble for fuel despite an assurance from Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) that the country has enough fuel reserves to last the next 30 days.
A visit to many filling stations in Lilongwe, Faceofmalawi reporter saw long queue of motorists scrambling for fuel.
The reporter also established that majority of pump stations in Lilongwe have already run dry.
In Blantyre especially Zalewa Filling Station in Neno District the reporter saw a long queue of Kabaza operators.
One of the Kabaza operators Jonathan Mizimu explains that a fuel attendant alerted them that the filling station was remaining with only few liters of fuel due to the on-going truck drivers strike in the country.
Mizimu fears this will greatly affect the Kabaza business and transportation of people from Zalewa Trading Centre to Neno Boma as it is the only reliable means of transportation in the district.
Currently the truck drivers continue with their national wide strike.
