MBABANE: Dorcas Dlamini the Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy has advised that there will be an increase of fuel prices with effect from February 4, 2021.
In a public statement, Dlamini said the increase of the prices has been triggered by the upward movement of oil prices in international markets. Dlamini further mentioned that this has been influenced by the stimulation of global economic activity as a result of the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines which has consequently increased the demand for crude oil.
