Malawians ! They don’t have a system of Fuel Inspection on delivery thus including water contamination, lead content for petrol, sulphur content for diesel and any other contamination. One does not even need to take samples to the lab as equipment for such should always be handy. I believe Chidaya of Times reprimanded Kasakula for not shelving this news under the carpet for fear of jeopardizing his business interests. Were told he owns Puma and thinks we stupid that we could not have heard. I will never buy fuel from Puma again and never again and never, never again!!!
