Mongu in Western province has had no fuel for four days now.
The provincial capital has been crippled by the complete lack of both petrol and diesel.
Motorists talked to by the Watchdog challenged government to explain what is really going.
“The area MP is not doing anything apart from fattening his pocket. We don’t know why he is in government,” said one angry motorist.
Some motorists said they suspect that government could be trying to paralyze activities in the province to curb secession programmes.
“These are the signs that the PF government is failing, it is a party we voted in Mongu Constituency but it has disappointed us,’ another motorist said.
