“Kenya Pipeline Company would like to confirm that there are ample stocks of petroleum products in our system throughout the country to meet demands” Said KPC Managing Director Dr. Macharia Irungu.

“Our global stock holding is adequate to serve the region, with more ships in Mombasa queued for discharge” Said Dr. Macharia

The news follows a shortage of the precious commodity experienced on Friday across the country causing uproar among Kenyans on the state of the country.

Some were forced to part way with more cash to get fuel as others were forced to turn back in a day that was filled with long ques at major petrol stations across the country.

As the country battles with increased prices of goods, Kenyans cried foul play from distributors citing plans to hoard the precious commodity before hiking the price further even after the last review.
