Jane Mlambo| Barely a few months after bragging or having addressed the fuel shortages in the country, government is now back to square one, with queues getting longer and longer with each passing day.

The situation has become so dire that most service stations in Harare do not have fuel or are dispensing diesel only.

Since August last year, Zimbabwe’s economy has been on a nosedive with prices of basic commodities now beyond the reach of many.

Though there are no shortages of other basic commodities, fuel has continued to be government’s biggest headache as they struggle against skyrocketing foreign exchange rates.

While government would want to hike fuel prices, the thought of another potentially deadly encounter with opposition and civil society groups could be the reason why there is no talk of another price increment.
