“This Country Is Being Led By Lunatics” Says Lumumba
THE Ministry of Energy and Power Development on Thursday moved swiftly and blocked a venture by a local delivery company Fresh in a Box which had partnered with a fuel entity Heavy Fuels in delivering fuel to homes, leading to ZANU-PF activist Acie Lumumba to retort: “We’re being led by insane people!”
Founded by Kuda Musasiwa, Fresh in a Box had announced that from Friday they will be delivering fuel at pump price with delivery and logistics charge of $5-$15 to pensioners, critical care workers, pregnant women and people with disability. 20 litres was being sold for $30.
The Ministry of Energy on Thursday issued a statement saying, “Section 29 of the Petroleum Act states that no one shall retail petroleum products without a ZERA license. EMA Act Chapter 20:27 & SI 12, 2007 requires anyone wishing to transport hazardous to have a Permit from EMA.”
In light of the statement Fresh in a Box issued a statement saying they were stopping the door to door delivery facility.
“To avoid faulting any Zimbabwean law and ZERA regulations , we will not be delivering fuel to your home. We will deliver coupons that you can redeem at your convenience at Heavy Fuels (Zimbabwes First EGarage). NO long waits for our vulnerable customers,” Kuda Musasiwa the leader of Fresh in a Box said.
Wrote Lumumba on Twitter:
“Decided to spend my Friday helping out Kuda Musasiwa with emergency fuel delivery. First delivery was to Nomathemba Primrose Ndebele. Order your fuel at http://www.20litres.com”
Acie Lumumba, who had gone around homes with Kuda Musasiwa delivering fuel, said: “Inini I think nyika ino tiri kutongwa nemapenzi (we’re being led by insane people).”
