MERA CLOSES MURRAY ROAD TOTAL FILLING STATION IN LILONGWE

Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA) closed Murray Road Total Filling Station in Lilongwe from doing business on claim that its pump attendants were tricking customers.

Chief Executive Officer, Henry Kachaje said MERA received a complaint from a consumer who had intended to buy fuel at K35,000 but he was given that worth K31,000.

Kachanje confirmed that the attendant, Mr Hendricks Chimoyo was overcharging customers and demanding tips for them to be sold fuel.

This behavior is making it hard for others to have access to fuel since there is an act of fraud and it is a serious violation of the Liquid Fuels and Gas Act

As a result MERA have awaken section 23 of the Liquid Fuels and Gas (Production and Supply) Act and Regulation 11 of the Liquid Fuels and Gas (Production and Supply) Regulations, directs Murray Road Total Filling Station to suspend all sales with immediate effect as from date of the latter on Friday, October 14.

Kachaje also ordered management of the filling station to provide a report on the matter within 7 days which is the month end of October.
