Engen says its fuel stations in Gauteng are running dry because oil tankers are unable to leave some depots.

Spokesperson Tania Landsberg says some oil tanker drivers are on strike, while others have been intimidated. The affected depots are in Langlaagte, Alrode and Waltloo.

Landsberg says they are struggling to cope, despite contingency plans. The company is getting updates on the situation in coastal areas.

She says there have been no reports from Cape Town, but they are keeping a close eye on the situation. Landsberg said although contingency plans were in place across the country, there would be challenges.
