Author : | Published: October 19, 2014

The Ministry of Petroleum and Mining says it has distributed fuel to nine petrol stations in Juba today to reduce shortage of the commodity.

There has been shortage of fuel in the capital.

The press secretary at the ministry, Nicodemus Ajak, says the fuel was supplied through the government oil firm, Nilepet.

He says the shortage of the fuel in the country is due to a delay in clearance in Kenya and at the border point in Nimule.

Mr Ajak says the nine stations supplied with the fuel were selected because of their easy access to the public.

“We are not choosing. We are just saying, at these stations, people are available. They are at strategic places,” Mr Ajak said.

The stations that have received fuel are; Global Station, Queen Station, Capital Station, Pay Oil Station, KENGAS Station, Assim Station, Mosh Station, Afrogas Station and Taalo Station.

Mr Ajak said Nile Pet has dispatched senior officials to Nesitu to make sure that trucks carrying fuel are cleared immediately.
