The government has assured the country that there are sufficient petroleum products on hand.
Andrew Kamau, the Principal Secretary for Petroleum and Mining, expressed confidence that Kenya currently has adequate supplies of gasoline, diesel, and kerosene.
The PS stated in a statement to newsrooms that the country has close to 81, 000 cubic meters of petrol in stock, and that with a daily uplift of 9.400 cubic meters of the commodity, the stock can last the country for nine days.
“The country equally has over 217, 000 cubic meters of diesel in stock and with a daily uplift of slightly above 10, 000 cubic meters, the stocks can last 22 days,” he added.
Kerosene is also well stocked and currently, the country has 55, 000 cubic meters of the commodity which can last 17 days as the daily uplift stands at 3, 251.
The PS has also disclosed that in less than a month, an additional 351, 284 cubic meters of petrol and 310, 656 cubic meters of diesel are expected.
“By the end of May, Kenya will be receiving 241, 868 cubic meters of petrol and 315, 738 cubic meters of diesel,” Kamau said.
The PS sentiments come even as the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) also assured of sufficient stocks in all its depots across the country.
