Mporokoso gets first fuel station

GOVERNMENT has opened the first-ever filling stations in Mporokoso and Luwingu districts of Northern Province at K9 million.
Officiating at the groundbreaking ceremonies yesterday, Deputy Minister of Mines, Energy and Water Development Charles Zulu said the programme is part of a uniform pricing mechanism aimed at availing rural areas with filling stations where people can access affordable and unblended fuel.
He hopes that the projects will provide the much-needed clean and affordable fuel to the masses, adding that fuel is more expensive in rural areas because of some hidden costs.
Mr Zulu said that government will construct two filling stations across the country annually to ensure that rural communities have access to fuel and that these will help in employment creation.
