Matatu drivers and vehicle owners has greatly thanked the The High Court of Kenya for having issued a temporary conservatory order blocking the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) from adjusting excise duty rates for petroleum products that was to be effective from Friday 1st October.
This temporary injunction was issued by High Court Judge Justice James Makau. James Makau made this orders after two petitioners, Isaiah Odando and Wilson Yata moved to the court last week, challenging the recent fuel price hike.
Among the orders that were sought by Makau were the quashing of the decision made by the Commissioner General of KRA to adjust excise duty rates for petroleum products subject to the approval of the National Treasury Cabinet Secretary.
Other than fuel products, other excisable goods which would attract higher prices from the inflation adjustment at 4.97 per cent include beer, wines & spirits, food supplements, imported motor vehicles, bottled water and cigarettes.
Also, telephone and mobile internet services which are covered under excisable services would attract greater costs on the adjustment
