Gas cylinder prices would range from Ksh 300 to Ksh 2800, depending on size, starting in June 2023, according to the announcement made by Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto, the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya.
At the beginning of Hustler's fund's second phase, the President made an announcement. The goal of this is to strengthen Kenyans' capacity to live sustainably using inexpensive loans.
The government is putting policies in place that will allow every family in Kenya to cook with gas.
On February 26, 2023, President William Ruto declared as much during a public gathering in Lamu.
He claimed that in order to guarantee Kenyans use clean energy, the government invested Sh25 billion into the initiative.
However, the President did not specify a completion date for this undertaking.
The Head of State continued by saying that initiatives to cut the nation's gas prices are also in the works.
President Ruto declared, "We will see to it that every home has a gas cylinder supplied by the government in order to ensure that we stop utilizing firewood as a source of energy.
In order to ensure that every Kenyan family can "afford a supper," the President promises to reduce the petrol tax.
The pledge was made just days after the President blessed the construction of an LPG refueling facility that will serve countries in the East African area.
The largest LPG gas retailer in Tanzania and company created by billionaire Rostam Aziz, Taifa Gas, owns the plant, which is worth approximately Sh18 billion.
The 30,000 metric tonnes storage facility is being constructed in the Likoni, Mombasa County, Dongo Kundu Special Economic Zone.
Taifa Gas's admission into the nation is a result of a bilateral trade agreement between Kenya and Tanzania that was negotiated during the leadership of Ruto's predecessor, Uhuru Kenyatta.
