Fuel Company ‘Webcon Total’ Fined, Fuel Seized & Forced To Shutdown

The owner of Webcon Total (Pvt) Limited, a service station in High Glen, Harare, Constance Shamu, has been fined US$300 for selling fuel without displaying prices.

Harare Magistrate Mrs Ruth Moyo yesterday ordered that in addition to the fine, the service station must be closed and the fuel seized.

State prosecutor Ms Berlinda Chimuka said that on Wednesday, informant Delight Dabengwa while on official duty doing routine checks, visited Shamu’s service station and noticed that the company was not displaying fuel prices though business was in full swing.

Shamu was then arrested, the service station was closed and the fuel was seized under the seal of regulator Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (ZERA).

In mitigation, Shamu apologised for committing the offence saying that the machine which is used to display prices was not functioning as the missing spare parts are not available on the local market.
