Trending:Angry Kenyans Reacts As Matatu Owners Association Kimutai Ask Operators To Continue Working

The recent uproar in Kenya in the transport sector has been caused by the increarment in the fuel prices.

In the new pricing announced on Tuesday this week, super petrol will retail at Sh134.72 per litre in Nairobi, a six per cent increase from Sh127.14 per litre.Diesel will retail at Sh115.6 over the next one month, also a sharp increase from Sh107.66. Kerosene, largely a poor man’s fuel for lighting and cooking, has also gone up substantially, increasing by Sh12.97 per litre to Sh110.82. This has caused a lot of tension as the Matatu Owners Association has gone in strike.

Despite this strike, Matatu Owners Association Chair Samuel Kimutai has asked the Matatu operators to go back and resume their work.

This has brought a lot of mixed reactions online as many people left a comment concerning what Kimutai announced. Many people have said that the operators will just strike and at the end, those other Kenyans will suffer more as the fares will be increased because of fuel. And this is so true.


Some are having the idea that the increased price in fuel has a political connection because of the upcoming elections next year. What do you think about this? Leave a comment on the comment section below.
