Trade CS Moses Kuria has once again hit Kenyans with the harsh reality of the Kenyan economics revealing that the price of petrol will retail at Ksh 260 in February next year.
Kuria through a statement noted that the coming El nino rains will last to March and together with other climate challenges are affecting the whole world.
According to the CS, responsible leaders should tell the country the truth just like he is doing.
- Super petrol and Diesel prices rise by Ksh 16.96 and 21.32 respectively
- Matatu Owners Association announce a 20 percent fare hike
- David Ndii hits Kenyans with reality on the country’s economy
- Pump prices to go up by Ksh 10 every month till February, Moses Kuria
“I repeat. Petrol will be 260 Ksh by February. And El Nino is coming in 3 weeks that will last till March. These are global and climate change driven. Responsible leaders ought to tell the truth to prepare the people. You can throw stones at me all you want,” said Moses Kuria
His statement comes barely a day after he confirmed to Kenyans that the prices of fuel will increase by Ksh 10 every month until February.
“Global Crude Prices are on an upward trajectory. For planning purposes expect pump prices to go up by Ksh 10 every month till February.” said the CS
Already Kenyans are facing harsh economic times made harder by the current fuel prices that hiked by KShs.16.96, KShs.21.32 and KShs.33.13 per litre for super petrol, diesel and kerosene respectively.
They have since called on President William Ruto to fulfil his election campaign promises before coming into office.
