Chipata district consumer watch group coordinator, Martins Njekwa, says that some people have continued transporting fuel in containers which is not allowed.
Mr. Njekwa also observed that some people are buying fuel in huge quantities and keeping it in containers, thereby, creating an impression that Chipata is experiencing a fuel shortage.
