 “As at today, we are delivering about 1,200 trucks; by weekend we should be delivering same number of trucks, it will take a bit of days to even-out, but you can see improvement already.” He said.

“I hope by the end of next week, with the refineries helping us to stay on course, every part of the country will get fuel.”
