Will it be a fueled Easter?
The fuel emergency that has plagued Kenya for the past ten days could end in the next 48 hours. This was stated by Energy Minister Monica Juma at a press conference in her office on Thursday, April 14.
"It is no longer the case to panic," the Minister said, "We have sufficient stocks in our depots. The program for the different types of products coming in has constant and uninterrupted supplies. We have quantities that would last us until the end of June without any problems."
Juma disclosed that after several factual meetings with oil marketing companies in Kenya and distributors' associations, Government was ready to honor its obligation to ensure that there is adequate fuel supply in the country. The Minister also spoke about what happened in Kenya.
"I confirm that a race to stow and ration fuel has taken place in the country - these are criminal actions that amount to economic sabotage. We are confident that supply and demand will correct over the next 72 hours after the announcement of the slight increase in fuel prices. Economic sabotage is a capital offense. We will deal with those responsible on a case-by-case basis. This cannot be tolerated."
Simultaneously with the return of gasoline in the country's distributors (in Mombasa already since yesterday the situation has normalized, from today in Nairobi the queues will be less long), will then be announced the increase of the super of Kes. 10 per liter and presumably also that of diesel. It should be noted that currently, at 135 shillings per liter, Kenya is the country in sub-Saharan Africa with the cheapest gasoline at the pump.
From today petrol, diesel and paraffin cost more in Kenya.
Good news for motorists and transportation in Kenya.
