The Energy Ministry has ordered 17 gas stations across the country to shut off their pumps after tests showed they had been selling contaminated gas. And the Major Organized and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) has been instructed to investigate further.
“They will be engaged to do further investigation in terms of illegal trading of petroleum products and to ensure that the law is properly enforced,” he said.
Samples of grades E10 90 and E10 87 fuel were taken from several service stations between December 22 and 24 and a contaminant known as gum was discovered. The 17 gas stations were not named.
