Addis Ababa Struggles with Fuel Shortages

Spread the love

The drivers in Addis Ababa have been facing difficulties due to the recent fuel shortages at gas stations. They have expressed their frustration, stating that the lack of fuel poses a significant challenge to their work. And it occurs approximately once or twice a month.

The drivers have also complained that the government is not responding promptly to address this issue. They feel that they are being subjected to severe harassment due to the frequent fuel shortages.

When asked about the matter, the Addis Ababa Trade Bureau claimed that they have provided sufficient fuel to the gas stations and are unaware of any shortages. Mr. Sewunt Ayele, the Director of Communications of the City Administration’s Commercial Office, acknowledged that there have been demonstrations for fuel in some areas.

Despite the Commercial Office’s claim that they do not have information about fuel shortages in the capital city, long queues have been observed at gas stations since last Thursday, indicating that there is indeed a shortage of fuel supply.

In summary, the drivers are struggling with a recurring fuel shortage that the government appears unable or unwilling to resolve on time, leading to frustration and a sense of unfair treatment among the transportation workers.
