Leader of Opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa has requested President Lazarus Chakwera to explore actionable strategies to mitigate the social and economic impacts of fuel price increase.

Nankhumwa made the call after touring some places in Blantyre City to assess prices of various commodities.

In his interview with the press Nankhumwa said the recent fuel price hike has left most Malawians, who are already struggling to make ends meet, more miserable.

“The 100 thousand Kwacha non-taxable bracket is now a mockery as it has been eroded following the increase in fuel pump prices. I ask the president to fulfill his campaign promises,” said Nankhumwa.

He then appealed to Chakwera to reduce the number of local and international trips.

Nankhumwa was accompanied by, among others, Blantyre City South East legislatior Sameer Sulemani, Victor Musowa and Santigo Phiri who are both MPs from Mulanje.
