Fuel Crisis in Kenya to End on Sunday

Fuel Crisis in Kenya to End on Sunday

Acting Petroleum Cabinet Secretary (CS) Monica Juma projects that the fuel crisis in Kenya will end on Sunday, April 17th, 2022.

Juma said the fuel crisis in the country will be resolved within 72 hours from Thursday, April 14.

Addressing journalists at Kawi Complex in Nairobi on Thursday, the minister said the fuel crisis in the country has been worsened by the ongoing war in Ukraine and the hike in crude oil prices.

She said the anxiety over fuel is a global concern, and it’s not unique to Kenya.

Juma said her ministry was aware of “growing rumours of the possibility of an increase in the prices of petroleum commodities in the country”.

At the same time, she said she’s been informed that there were reports suggesting that the Government would discontinue the fuel stabilisation programme over its alleged unsustainability.

The minister has, however, allayed these fears, saying the price review won’t shock Kenyans, as the fuel subsidy programme would continue.
