ERB Announces Fuel Hike

The Energy Regulation Board has increased the pump price of fuel with petrol now fetching K16.06 per litre while diesel is costing K14.65 per litre.

Kerosene will now be sold at K11.43 marking K2.49 upward adjustment.

ERB Board Chairperson said that the price adjustment was driven by market forces.

“It should be noted that the last upward price review was on 12th February 2018, the kwacha. Despite subsequent cargos being assessed, there were no price adjustments on 9th April, 2018 and 15th June, 2018 as the required adjustments were below the ERB set threshold of 2.5 %. Further, the 14th August 2018 price review could not be implemented as there was need to take into account the Saudi Arabia cargo which was due to arrive separately,” he said.

Mpundu said the Saudi shipment had no impact on the overall market.

The increment takes effect at midnight.

    The government is busy faking defections when such critical issues in the lives of Zambian citizens are overlooked, when I wrote previously saying we are suffering here in Nakonde someone said, people from far places like solwezi come to Nakonde to buy goods & food. Is it Nakonde or Tanzania that they are buying these things from? life in this country is becoming hard, this is truly Babylon God help us. Problem in Zambia we have politicians not leaders, leaders are long gone, Sata, Mwanawasa…….God help us.

    Comment. When people are saying you don’t have leadership qualities, they really mean it. Just come on board and tell the people that you have resigned so that people with broader thinking capabilities can take charge of this country unlike small minded ones to ruin our country.

  16. Citizen

    When do we expect beer to increase? Stupidity is allowed in this party, the rich are saft and sound. Yet the poor are sluggish down. Ba lungu, blind leader. What is your roll as a presupres. Tanzania are benefit from nakonde booing product produce in their country. Shame on us. Be a man, leader the country. Mwanawasa, sata they are gone.

    HH, can you explain this economy even though they hate you. Can show or help lungu to wake up from sleeping.

  34. Corruption now will be worse

    Hehe!That is how things work in Economics sometimes there is a downfall in Economic activity because of too much interference by politicians. Economy players are the private sector,they are the ones who invest their money in the country once you start threatening them they lock up their dollars and the result is what you see.The MMD liberalized the economy in 1991 and the Kwacha became quite stable after a lot of hard work by the late Ronald Penza who I feel some people have already forgotten about.During the late President Mwanawasas term Mr Magande managed to lobby for cancellation of the huge debt Zambia owed to the IMF and the economy became powerful where today we are still even drunk with that comfortable period in the history of this country. The pf came to power and turned things upside down and everyone has been complaining since then. It is high time Zambians start learning how the economy of the country is run so that they can make informed decisions when choosing a government.

  35. Muzo

    that’s de zambians need

  36. jkp

    more dept,in de country their is high prices of meal-meal so how do you except things to be okay?

  37. You the one chosen him

    Yours is to watch and follow; chapwa, once you speak out you become an enemy. What your leader use is autocratic, so open your eyes and see tomorrow otherwise your president is there to absorb; nowonder is rich than the day he bribed onto there.


    Oops!!! Danger in future.

  41. Nana Borne Bob

    Zambia is sliding into red see, before it slides into red see, let’s put our Heads together and pray to our almighty God to help us, let us not blame the government, but the Bible says we should pray for our leaders for them to use the knowledge of God as they are in leadership. We should not case them, we should not hate them, but bless them.

    Fuel prices have gone up on international market because OPEC countries have cut production…..but any thoughtful or thinking government should have supporting policies that shield it from such external forces….I wonder if this Zambia has any SWOT analysis which actually can help and drive this our economy….people Zambia is a retail country…..a consuming nation nothing really to talk about in manufacturing …..I would like to know what trade deals we have with various nations if any….have people enlightened with such and get “us” thinking in those directions as a nation….let’s think of what Zambia can do/produce/manufacture and offer to the outside world to bring in the dollar….people everything is imported from toothpicks to panties to fish and chickens really..????I tell you we’ll remain choked forever……Let’s think and support each other for the good of the next generations…..


    Aaaash!!!! Mwatichita
