Fuel supply has been restored in all parts of the country, according to Energy Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma.
Juma went on to say that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is looking into Oil Marketing Companies that have been hoarding fuel for the past two weeks, causing a shortage.
She stated that the re-allocation of import capacities among OMCs is currently underway and will be completed by April 21.
On Thursday, the CS accused some marketers of sabotaging the economy and demanded that those who refused to supply the commodity exit the market.
“The country has adequate fuel supplies.” “We’ve discovered that some players are stockpiling fuel in the hopes of a price drop that will provide them with a financial windfall,” she said.
“Any entity or person causing distress or creating an artificial problem will not be tolerated by this government.” Any entity that is not ready, able, or willing to work within Kenya’s legal framework is asked to leave the market immediately,” she added.
This came just hours after the government ordered Jean-Christian Bergeron, the Managing Director and CEO of Rubis Kenya, to be deported.
