Tanzania’s President Samia Hassan held an emergency meeting of her cabinet on Sunday night over price hikes of fuel in the country.
The country’s energy regulator, Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority, last week announced record high fuel prices.
The cabinet meeting in the coastal city of Dar es Salaam was attended by Prime Minister Kassin Majaliwa, the ministers of energy and finance, among others.
“The president directed those present to find an immediate solution to the rising fuel prices in the country,” said the president’s office in a statement.
