While the privileged who live in Maputo murmur that fuels prices are high, gasoline that costs 65.01 in the capital, costs 73.18 in Zumbo and 75.18 meticais in Mecula. Diesel, which in the City of Acacias has risen to 61.16, costs 69.33 in the easternmost district of Tete province and 71.33 meticais in the northernmost district of Niassa province.

Paradoxically Mozambicans living outside Maputo, where poverty continues to increase, have never received any subsidy of the kind that Maputo residents have benefited from for years, the cost of liquid fuels just one more example that so-called “national unity”, defended at great length by our rulers, does not translate into the practical aspects of life in our country.
