Malawians to pay more in new fuel prices as Kwacha continue to weaken

News of the move –motorists will have to dig deeper into their pockets following the upward adjustments of fuel prices by Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (MERA).

Fuel pump prices  up

Fuel pump prices up

Nyasa Times understands that the regulator have  adjusted upwards fuel prices effective November  8, 2014.

Petrol is now MK 856.70 up from 796.20, per litre Diesel now selling at MK 865.90 from MK805.50.

“Malawi Energy Revenue Authority (Mera) has resolved that maximum pump price for petrol, diesel and paraffin be revised upwards effective November 8 2014,” reads the statement.

Mera cited the movement of international oil prices, exchange rate of the kwacha to the dollar and other macro-economic fundamentals.

The kwacha continues to lose ground against major trading currencies and has slipped further to K520 to a dollar in some foreign exchange bureaus and authorised dealer banks (ADBs.

Daily foreign exchange bureau rates show the kwacha selling at K520 to a dollar which is a steep fall from K460 to dollar in May when the country held elections.

Spot-checks revealed that on the parallel market or black market, a dollar is selling at K530 and buying at K565, indicating a steep fall in the value of the local unit which was selling at K455.

Financial analysts predict that the local currency will continue ceding against other foreign currencies in view of prevailing economic environment.

The increase in fuel prices could have an effect on transportation costs and the cost of power, which are some of the main drivers of inflation in Malawi .

Malawi’s major donors under the Common Approach to Budget Support (Cabs) are withholding budget support for Malawi worth $150 million (over K60 billion) following the revelations of massive public funds abuse at Capital Hill popularly known as cashgate.

    Every time there is a Mutharika at State House, a myriad of problems engulfs Malawi . APM’S late brother, despite his many weaknesses and faults, was a more formidable man koma he still got to a point when he cried out that “Satana wamukhalira pa msana”. My worry is, ngati wamkulu uja anafuula kuti wakhalliidwa pa msana, uyu wombwambwanayu alimba?

  18. Malindima says:

    I don’t understand why any government in the world can be blamed when it comes to fuel price increases which it has no direct control.
    To those who complain without advising the government on what options to follow have no slightest clue of how global economy behaves and therefore should not blame anyone on the subject that they don’t know.

    1. techwiz94 says:

      malindima it’s clear you dont know what you are saying. .right now fuel prices are dropping all over the world, so for you to say that people are wrong to question the government is just absurd.

    2. Chilungamo Chimawawa says:

      are you mad,?ask countries like Botswana and other neighbours if they have increase pump prices like that? this govt is a big shame to Malawians…. we need to start acting now b4 its too late!!!!

    We need large notes now. Just imagine U$ has notes up to 100 which translates to MK50,000. Why should we still be stacking $2 in our pockets thinking we have more money? Please Mr RB Governor we need new notes say 5k, 10, 20, 50 and even 100k. What do you think guys….?

    1. Munuke says:

      It is only in Malawi where the biggest note K1000 is the most commonly used note. Normally small notes are commonly used. When k100 was the highest note in early 1990s it was equivalent to almost $35. It does not make any sense to have a $2 equivalency as the highest note. Justifications such as ikakutayika and may cause inflation are primitive and a reflection of retrogression.

  25. wakunja says:

    I wonder whether many people that comment here really know how governments are run and how they generate money. Do you think things could have been different if Joice, Kaya Atupere or Chakwera had won? All these guys could have no donor aid coming which is mainly the center of current financial challenges our government is facing. In addition to that, we do not have huge exports that can enable us to generate the much needed forex. But i do not imply that leaders must not be responsible, and must come up with ways on how to tackle these challenges. Frankly, i have never seen a leader in Malawi who had such visions for the country. Most, if not all had vision for themselves, how they can become rich or win the second term, just things to move their own interests. To some extent Bingu was trying to build these things in his first term but he became so arrogant in his second term and just went on to squander government money for his own interests. I think it is time we have leaders that are really honest and who have the interest of poor Malawians at heart. I wonder we shall have any, am very pessimistic because of the kind of politicians we have. There is a lot to be desired in our leaders. I wonder how people praise Joice when we know during her time, billions of kwachas went into people’s pocket just within three months of 2 year rule. How about if she was president for 5 years. I do not expect much from any of our leaders and am very pessimistic things will get any better because of the kind politicians that we elect as leaders. I think it is time we begin to invest our thoughts and energies into that really can bring a positive change to our lives particularly religious things. Putting our trust in men will never bring any value to our lives especially politicians. It is like building a house on sand

    1. Chilungamo Chimawawa says:

      my friend don’t lie to Malawians here, Joyce Banda started to stabilise our economy after devaluation and floatation but this idiot has taken the economy back to the days of his brother Bingu. DPP is very happy when Malawians cry. they love seeing our tears! the problem is that they rigged elections, apart from those who have never gone to school who voted for DPP! We need to be brave and start acting now. We need federalism!

    Peter Mutharika and his DPP have been ruling since June 2014. May I ask anyone to tell me only one positive thing they have done for Malawians. Well DPP is the party that brought Malawi to its knees by April 2012. The majority of poor Malawians should expect very tough times ahead.

      we did not elect Chakwera to be our leader of opposition. We chose him as our president and we are just waiting for the time. Nyasi zanuzi zisatikhudze.

    I am sure the government will find a solution to it before it is too late.They need to stabilise the economy soon.

  45. Malawi has no future. Mungatani. These DPP politicians fool us during campaigns. The only problem with JB was choice of her government that include Uladi, BJ, Chilapondwa, Kamanya and Khumbo. She liked external travel and cashgate finished her off. Shielding Mphwiyo.

    Maxon Mbendera, and all those who helped in rigging the last elections, i.e. Samuel Tembenu, Kalekeni Kaphale, Brian Bowler, Saulosi Chilima etc , how do these sad developments make you feel? If you are human beings with normal consciences, how are you feeling now? Do you feel proud every morning when you look at yourselves in the mirror? I wish we could meet in person so that you look me in the face and tell me whether you don’t experience moments of shame in your miserable daily existences . You, and not APM, are responsible for the misery that Malawians are experiencing now . APM didn’t even know the first thing about winning an election, whether honestly or dishonestly . It is you people who shall forever carry the guilt of robbing Malawians of their God – given right, the right to choose leaders of their choice . Malawians didn’t choose APM and your DPP .

  49. he must step down , and bring back 92 billion to the ground .we have experience tough time less than a year what about five years.

For sure there is no difference between DPP & PP just look at their abbreviation & origin is the founder of cashgate UDF. Malawians are paying a good price of foolishly voting for thieves Peter, JB & Atupele. Donors know these hardcore criminals. Sorry foolish voters.

The biggest fool is the voter who did not understand that once beaten twice shy. These are a bunch of govern elites whose agenda is to grow thier offshore bank accounts.

    Now we have on the driving seat a man who fails even to inspire the nation to work hard. He can not a make a plausible speech, be it in English, Chichewa let alone Chilhomwe. The only thing he knows is to ask Malawians to pay tax so that he can cashgate it again. He is not contented with the 92billion. Paying tax is an obvious thing bwana. Tell us something tangible Mr President. If you thought running a country is as simple then I can bet you that by 2019 you will be a more miserable man than you have ever been. By the end of 5 year tenure you will leave Malawi in rags. So, yes Malawi prepare to pay 1200mk per litre before the end of this year.

    These are the fruits of cashgate and Malawians are suffering because of evil minded people who stole our tax money. The courts should be giving stiff sentences to cashgaters like the Sokos who benefited through his company.

      @ Malunza

      You should be the most stupid person in your family, clan, locality, village, district, region. May God forgive you for you know not what you are saying. Pathetic

  86. Boko says:

    Yes donors keep your money and send your help directly to projects. Don’t give DPP & its govt anything, these are thieves that rigged into government with the aim of stealing. See they have no clue as to how to run a govt, they are stuck and everything else is at standstill. As for us the majority, don’t worry we have always suffered with or without donor funds becoz the funds are stolen by the few elite and never get to us. Especially the Mutharika’s are well known and documented thugs, thieves and murderers.

    What is the use of this DPP govt? To kill people? I thought they are paid to help (and not harm) Malawians? Why raise fuel prices when international fuel prices have fallen and Malawians don’t have money for their living. Malawi now is very much poorer than the time of elections, and we’ve dropped 12 steps down the prosperity index to one of the poorest countries in Africa. Fuel in TZ, MZQ, ZA (our neighboring countries) has not gone up and the people there are much better off economically. Why is this DPP govt killing Malawians like this? DPP must work to make the lives of people better, not making it worse as is the case. They need to stop stealing; they need to seal the leaking bucket; they need to arrest and jail all those who have stolen govt money from 2005 and confiscate property acquired with stolen money and bring the money back to govt bucket. Donors will then come back and the country’s credibility will be restored, and Malawians will stop suffering. If DPP cannot do these things why are they in govt? We must take these people to task – they are wasting our lives and our time; they must get out of govt if they’re not ready to work for the betterment of Malawians. People that voted for DPP have brought misery to Malawians.

    The prices can only be effective if they were approved by MERA Board but right now we have no Board at Mera, infact the mandate of all Boards have expired therefore this directive is null and void and can be challenged. Please appoint Boards to correct this situation, Parastal Organizations must operate constitutionally
