MZUZU--Puma Energy Malawi Limited says the country has come up with proper planning this year as regards fuel importation and is confident Malawi will not experience fuel problems this year.
"I think where we stand now, the country has come up with proper planning as far as importation of fuel is concerned. I'm sure all Malawians will agree with me that we've forgotten about queues. There were a little bit of resurfacing of product shortages in the initial part of December, but then that was sorted-out," Puma's Managing Director Davies Linjesi said Friday in Blantyre during a graduation dinner for 21 people who successfully completed a 10-day intensive Lincence to Operate (LTO) training which equips individuals with the prerequisite skills to run Puma Filling Stations.
The MD said his company has enough fuel reserves for over 30 days.
He added: "In the meetings I've been party to, all stakeholders, all key decision makers are prioritising fuel and that's why I'm more optimistic that this year we may not suffer, see or witness any fuel shortages in this country because all the key stakeholders have agreed to give priority to fuel importation, medicine and fertiliser as key strategic commodities for this economy."
