Kenyans are now facing tough moments after the government increased the price of fuel. Increasing the cost of fuel will lead to increase in the transport costs. When this happens, there will be a general increase in the price of goods nationwide.
Following the increase in the fuel costs, the matatu operators planned demos in different parts of the country, demanding for a decrease in the cost of the fuel. However, the the president of the Republic of Kenya didn't addressed them either.
Those who have planned journeys are likely to suffer from this sudden increase in the transport cost that is likely to occur. Citizens have, therefore, teamed up with the matatu operators in pleading with the state to have mercy on them.
However, the deputy president William Ruto has come out to say something over the fuel price hike. While speaking today, DP Ruto said that the officials who were selected to offer advises to the government should now resume their work and give right advice to the state on the way forward. He also added that this is the time that the affected ministry should have it's officials, sit down and discuss the matter to provide immediate solution before Kenyans are thrown into endless suffering.
