Fuel tanker drivers orders to go back to work


Transport Minister Mutotwe Kafwaya has appealed to fuel tanker drivers to start work so that they do not disrupt supply.

Mr. Kafwaya also assured the drivers that government will use diplomatic channels to address the issue of stranded drivers in Mozambique.

Mr. Kafwaya was addressing drivers in Ndola this morning.

He said he was assigned by President Edgar Lungu to get the drivers concerns and assured them that government is addressing their concerns.

The fuel tanker drivers have staged a work boycott demanding fair treatment.

Over three thousand tankers have been packed in Lusaka and Ndola, threatening smooth supply of fuel.

The drivers are among other things demanding the removal of foreign fuel transporters from the Zambian fuel transportation chain.

The drivers are also demanding to be given the 50 percent share to transport fuel.

The drivers also complained that their colleagues are stranded in Mozambique for over 40 days because they have been refused to load fuel.
