DR Congo: fuel shortage and long queues in Kinshasa

Long queues have been witnessed at petrol station in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, as the city struggles with fuel shortages, the BBC reports.

Fuel prices have not changed, but only limited amounts are being sold per day.

The shortage started to bite on Monday although the authorities insist there is sufficient supply.

The government has tried to reassure people by saying the situation is being addressed.

Oil marketers in the country have demanded that fuel prices go up to match international prices.
