Diesel in Shangombo District of Western is cheaper than in other parts of the Country. A snap check at Nangweshi market reveals that per litre the comodity is sold at K4500.
The fuel dealers attribute the reduction in price due to the cheaper source of accessing the comodity.
They said the comodity is bought cheaper from Sioma High School.Sioma High School receives thousands of litres of fuel from GRZ to run its generator just like Shangombo District Boma.
Accountability for the fuel is questionable as workers at the School pilfer the comodity starting with the Head of the Institution down to a watchman.
