A quick check in SADC reveals that the average pump price for petrol is $1.20 per liter which equals K26.69.

In Zambia, the pump price is K17.60 which represents a differential of K10.00. If you load VAT, that comes to K21.40 which is still below a dollar.

The true pump price is K30.99 at current rate and Government is directly subsidising K13.39.

  1. This analysis or illustration shows the kind of people ruling us. Yes the cost of ZMW 30.99 have making our Kwacha a newspaper currency. What is USD $1 to Zambian Kwacha (22.5) compared to Botswana Pula (10.2), Namibian Dollar (12.3) and South African Rand (12.3)? Think before you naked oneself. Failure is failure no matter how you explain.
