Atupele Muluzi: Two reserves ready

Malawi is constructing fuel reserves in all the three regions of the country, with capacity of 10 million litres in the North, 25 million litres in the Centre and another 25 million litres in the South, adding up to 60 million litres once complete.

Muluzi said the completion of the reserves would increase the fuel buffer to about four months from the current 14 days.

“These strategic fuel silos are a gateway to boosting the country’s development because they are being constructed in such a way that the country would have fuel for up to three and half months.

“Currently, we are in the final stages of the two fuel reserves while the other one [in Blantyre] is expected to be finalised in the next three months,” Muluzi told official news agency Mana.

Malawi Government, obtained  a loan from the Indian government worth $26 million for the project.

    Building fuel storage is one thing, having strategic reserves is another thing altogether. Just we have maize silos all over the country, find out how much maize reserves we have. Whilst filling maize silos does not require forex, filling up fuel tanks does. Are we going to borrow from the indians again to build up fuel reserve stocks?

    Why not 25 million litres in each region. Why dont Malawi plan ahead, instead you will find after 10 years, a need to increase capacity arise in Mzuzu. Even the current capacity of our Hospitals, Colleges etc need to be increased because initially we didnt plan for the future

    For 60million liters we need us $60,000,000 ! Are you going to also loan the money to fill the tanks. Why everything we do we have to loan money and not pay cash. I learnt from a an early age never to lend money. I am not sorry i learnt they lesson

    Bravo Hr.Muluzi for fuel silos updates

  21. Kadakwiza says:

    25 millions litres of fuel reserves for Lilongwe and Blantyre while in Mzuzu fuel reserve is 10 million litres. So why not constructing a 15million litre fuel reserve? Northern Region will always be the last when comes to development.
