A new twist has now emerged over the unending accusations surrounding the high fuel prices in Kenyan.This comes following recent claims by Deputy President William Ruto in his response to the hiked fuel prices. Instead, an office in the Ministry of Mining and Petroleum now dragging DP Ruto's and Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter's names into the accusations, claiming that they should be questioned to shade light into the matter.
While speaking from his Karen residence on Monday, Ruto claimed that there are cartels in the Ministry of Petroleum who are hiking the prices of Petroleum products.
"The corruption cartels at the Ministry of Petroleum should explain to Kenyans why dealers have increased their profits from sh 9 to sh 12. We should not be told that noone is answerable," Ruto said.<https://youtu.be/i3iTXe-DPeI>
However, the office of the Ministry of Mining and Petroleum, through CAS Hon Eng. John Mosonik as expressed their hunger with DP William Ruto for referring to the office as a breeding ground for cartels.
Hon. Mosonik have come out gun blazing, as he told DP Ruto to stop beating around the bush and name the cartels. He said that not even president Uhuru Kenyatta has never disrespected his office like Ruto did, hailing and pungent names.
"Uhuru Kenyatta who entrusted me with this job have never tainted my office with allegations and pungent names. If Ruto knows the cartels by their names let him come out without beating around the bush," Mosonik said.
The CAS has claimed that if there is someone to answer for the hiked fuel prices, then it should be the second in command and Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter, washing his hands off the claims that were made by Dp Ruto.
"I'm clean. Ruto together with CS Charles Keter should be questioned for the hiked fuel prices," he said.https://www.facebook.com/101740555339573/posts/236302248550069/
