Protest from Kenyans as fuel prices rise once again

14 August 2015, 18:02 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Fuel Prices have once again risen, with the cost of fuel levies as well as increased importation costs forcing Kenyans to dig deeper in their pockets.

The Energy Regulatory Commision ERC announced Friday that the cost of Super Petrol would increase by 4 Shillings.

Those of diesel and kerosene have however dropped.

" This month’s pump prices took into account of an addition Sh3 per liter in the pricing of super petrol and diesel to cover the enhanced Road Maintenance Levy (RML) announced in this year’s budget,” ERC Director General Joseph Ng’ang’a said in a statement.

" Accordingly, recovery of the additional cost borne by oil marketing companies has been factored for all cargoes whose taxes were paid after the effected date," he added.

Super Petrol will now retail at KES 103 in Nairobi, 102 in Mombasa and Nakuru and 104 in Kisumu.

In a quick rejonder, the Motorists Association of Kenya and Consumer Federation of Kenya both condemned the latest increase.

" Fuel controls which we had agitated for years have been hijacked. Fuel pricing in Kenya is not fair anymore. The present fuel price formulation is far from what was enacted as law in 2010. The formula is a charade,” The Motorist Association said.
