PF reduces fuel prices by 85 Ngwee

Mockery. As Zambians await cheap fuel from Saudi Arabia as promised by Edgar Lungu and Chishimba Kambwili, the Energy Regulations Board (ERB) has mockingly reduced fuel prices. ERB Board Chairperson Raymond Mpundu has announced at a Press Briefing in Lusaka today that Petrol pump prices have been reduced from K12.50 per litre to K 11.67 representing a reduction of 83Ngwee while Diesel has been reduced from K10.72 per litre to K9.87 representing a reduction of 85Ngwee. Kerosene which is mainly used by villagers in rural areas has been reduced by 31Ngwee from K6.81 per litre to K6.50 per litre. The reduction which could probably be an early Christmas present for PF cadres is with effect from midnight tonight. Before the August 2016 elections Edgar Lungu went to hide stolen money in Saudi Arabia and came back and told Zambians that a deal had been struck with Saudi Arabia to supply Zambia with cheap fuel that would translate to between K5 to K8 per month. It is now one year and the cheap fuel is only at State House and Cabinet Office. Instead Edgar Lungu had ordered himself a Presidential Jet from Russia at a cost of US50 million and wants a new State house at a cost of US 20 million. Last year before elections Lungu also directed The Food Reserve Agency (FRA) to buy Maize from Farmers at K85 per 50kg bag but this year he says he does not fix prices and FRA is buying maize at K60 per 50kg bag from the same farmers that have Kerosene reduced by 31Ngwee. Anyway do not worry, Zambian Watchdog will inform you when the cheap fuel starts flowing and when the buying price of Maize is raised. For now you can wait for new favours in 2021.

    Abashilima don’t understand ama loses we have incurred. This Government has let down. I m just wondering ubututu bwa leadership to punish farmers. Really, you spend k1440 of four bags of fertilizer per Lima minus seed and labour expenses, which normally yields 15 bags of maize. 15 bags of maize will give you k900 and somebody is celebrating at nabubwela ubunga.A peasant farmer has no capacity to export. Amasambili mwaonaula fye? At I nababwesha ubunga ubuwele were bwekafye.

    l like Keith Mweemba the lawyer. He is like the late lawyer Richard Ngenda. May the almight God bless him as he continue exposing the evil ones in our courts.

  • The K1 Per Litre Fuel Is On The Way – The President H.E ECL Has A Prophetic Taste; lets believe with him ‘All Things are possible with God and to all those who believe. Long Live The President of the RZ.

  • If they increased with this same amount you could have said its too much now that its on the other side of the coin then its meagre. Really

  • 65 ngwee reduction for diesel and then u see someone celebrating. what has gone wrong in the heads of many Zambians?

    • There’s absolutely nothing wrong with celebrating this reduction for several reasons. Now let me first start by stating that all of us wish the reduction was way more meaningful for us, no, in fact, we wish we could have free fuel and all but we all know that will never happen so lets get back to reality here. Why should we celebrate a reduction as little as K 0.85? Well the answers are because; first of all, a reduction in the pump price translates into reduced cost of production which subsequently ignites a reduction in basic commodities. So no, the reduction isn’t as small as you may be making it sound. Secondly, the K 0.85 reduction is ONLY of less significance if you do not buy fuel in bulk. What i mean is that the reduction of fuel pump price by K1 translates into a saving of K100 per hundred litres of fuel you buy. And the K 100 you save can be used to buy 2 bags of mealie meal if you top up a K20. So Work out your math and you will appreciate the this gesture unless you just want to play politics which i must confess is not my area of expertise.
