Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) on Sunday February 14, took to social media to announce the new prices of fuel that expected to take effect from Monday February 15 to 14th March 2021.
"Below is the cost breakdown of Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene for the period 15th February – 14th March 2021 with Nairobi as an example. For detailed Press Release, please visit our website", EPRA posted on Twitter.
COTU boss Francis Atwoli who has been working tirelessly to protect the rights of Kenyan workers in both private and in public sector warned EPRA to intervene immediately to avoid adding burden to many Kenyans who are struggling. This is because increase in fuel prices leads to increase in transport costs.
"As @COTU_K, WE condemn the outrageous and insensitive action by @EPRA_Ke to increase the cost of fuel. This will have a domino effect on the cost of living in Kenya with transportation and prices of goods going up. We demand that the concerned minister intervenes IMMEDIATELY", COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli stated.
