The Malawi Defence Force (MDF) says from Friday, October 1, 2021, engage its personnel in the distribution of fuel in the country, MDF communicates in a statement.
This follows the sit-in of tanker drivers which has disrupted distribution of fuel in the gas stations.
The statement says armed military escort will be provided to fuel tankers from the country’s borders to National Oil Company of Malawi (NOCMA) depots and distribution from the depots to commercial gas stations will be done by military drivers.
MDF appeals to members of the general public to avoid interfering with the operation as it is in line with one of its constitutional roles of providing technical expertise and resources to assist the civilian authorities in the maintenance of essential services in times of emergency in the country.
The statement adds that the MDF will carry on with the exercise until the situation normalises.
