The Botswana Ministry of Mineral Resources, Green Technology and Energy Security said the Government has authorized the release of strategic stocks into the market in order to normalise the current fuel supply situation in the country.

The Ministry said, the country had expected the fuel supply situation to normalize in two/three days, but due to buying and some filling stations daily demand increased in threefold has caused panic and continuous strain on fuel supply in the country.

The Government said, a number of fuel trucks and train wagons continue to arrive into the country through Namibia, South Africa and Mozambique but they have to observe COVID19 protocols which is necessary and urges the public not to panic and to avoid stockpiling fuel as this results in a supply/demand mismatch and Purchasing of fuel using containers will not be allowed until the situation normalises.
