Kalonzo faults increase in fuel prices

Wiper Democratic Movement Leader Hon Kalonzo Musyoka has decried the sudden increase of fuel prices in Kenya announced by EPRA yesterday saying nothing significant has happened to necessitate such a move.

The Wiper leader says the incredible increment will hurt the already strained Kenyans because its implications are the rise of prices of basic commodities.

Kalonzo says Government must consult over such drastic matters that affect the common mwanchi directly and a common stand of cushioning them is reached before subjecting them to torture and stress of imaginable proportion.

The Wiper leaders say there is no tangible reason that could have necessitated such a drastic rise calling on Kenyans to stand out and speak about it.

Kalonzo was addressing participants at the People Dialogue Festival (PDF) at the Hilton Hotel added that the Sustainable Development goals advocate for the eradication of poverty “with such hike in fuel, we are pushing Kenyans to poverty“
