DP asks energy ministry to check rising fuel prices


Deputy President William Ruto has asked the Ministry of Energy to work with relevant bodies and Parliamentary Committees to address the steep rise in fuel prices.

He said the fuel price increase will translate to a general rise in the cost of living.

“This is mistaken in the middle of the COVId-19 pandemic,” he explained.

Dr Ruto asked public officers to get to work and offer right advise to the Government so that “right decisions on people issues are made”.

“We must team up and manage this situation that threatens to go out of hand,” he added

He regretted that leaders were absconding their duties by engaging in politics that was adding no value to the people.

He was addressing grassroots leaders from Kandara Constituency at his Karen Residence today.

MPs present were Alice Wahome, Irungu Kang’ata and Kimani Ichungw’ah.
