It is on a beautiful Monday morning and the pain at the pump has just begun to be felt by most Kenyans. While most of the products which depend on petrol have started going up, the transport sector has been struggling with hiked fare prices.
The rise in fuel prices has also caused problems inside president William Ruto’s government with DP Rigathi Gachagua reading riot to CS Moses Kuria, David Ndii and others upon his arrival from Colombia on Sunday.
Economic advisor to the President Dr David Ndii, for example, told Kenyans it is time to pay for the “sins” of the previous regime, saying that “financial delinquency has no solutions, only consequences”.
Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria told Kenyans to brace for even more pain, predicting fuel prices could rise by about Sh10 every month for the next four months.
Do you think Kenyans can breath a sigh of relieve anytime soon over fuel prices?
