PAPPPI plans ‘national day of protests’ over predicted fuel price hikes

Yesterday, 13 September, the Automobile Association (AA) announced that the mid-month unaudited data from the Central Energy Fund (CEF) predicted the biggest fuel price hike in South Africa’s history by some margin.

The newly formed People Against Petrol, Paraffin & Price Increase (PAPPPI) group took to its Facebook page too this week, also saying that fuel hikes were expected next month.

The post read in part, “Next month our fuel prices are expected to increase by over R1 a litre making it the single biggest increase in decades.”

The group further stated that it was planning a national day of protests on 28 September and they called on all South Africans to get involved.

“Please Join PAPPPI website www.papppi.co.za and keep updated on our fuel campaign. We now have close to 100 000 supporters in over 400 WhatsApp groups which is growing daily,” read the organisation’s Facebook post.

“We are not giving up the fight to bring fuel prices down.”

According to a report by TimesLive, the group said that despite petrol prices only marginally increasing this month, it would still go ahead with its late September protest, and would run it differently from their previous protests. This, as the report stated that the group had embarked on various protests in the past that were not successful.

On its Facebook page, the group further stated that it was busy with research and aimed to bring South Africans ‘a groundbreaking and innovative proposal’. Among the aims of the proposal was to reduce fuel prices by R5 a litre.
