This problem was created by IMF. They dictated to government that when the the kwacha falls by 5% they should automatically increase the price of fuel.

Which petroleum products have gone up? Petroleum products are going down on the world market. If you can just talk about the the depreciation of the kwacha against the dollar it could maybe make sense. Malawi economy Eish

So how on earth the very commodity the price is droping while others are encreasing 69 cents down here Mzasi


Just a few weeks Russia and Saudi Arabia met and agreed to keep crude oil output at the current level so as to ease down the glut. No wonder prices are rebounding now! Here we are! uMzantsi Afrika (IsiXhosa) and uMzansi/iNingizimu Afrika (isiZulu)!
