Unpaid fuel debts are $77 mn Between 2011 and 2014 the Guebuza government heavily subsidised fuel, and ran up a debt to the distribution companies of $330 million, Almirante Dimas, deputy director of hydrocarbons and fuel in the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy told a 17 April press briefing.
The current government abolished most fuel subsidies and has paid most debts, but unpaid bills of $77 mn remain.
Diesel is still subsidised for agriculture, artisanal fishing, diesel-fired power stations in areas not linked to the grid, and for privately owned minibuses (known as “chapas”). (Aim En 17 Apr – Source: Joseph Hanlon)
