Dp Ruto Uses Diversion Tactics By Blaming Energy Ministry Cartels For Rise In Fuel Prices

Deputy President William Samoei Ruto, while addressing Tangatanga leaders and supporters at his Karen Residence Yesterday afternoon, called out cartels in the energy sector and blamed them for the rise in cost of fuel.

He said that it was not the taxes the government had imposed on the essential product, but that it was unscrupulous crooks in the form of Ministry officials in the energy sector who were controlling the prices of fuel, and plunging Kenyans into more economic misery.

He further claimed that, the so called cartels, were doing so inorder to enable afew rich companies realise Super profits, while millions of Kenyans continue to suffer.

However, most Kenyans have taken to social media to question the narrative being advanced by Ruto and his allies. They wondered why the Deputy President never raised such concerns, when his friend Charles Keter was at the helm of the Energy ministry. Keter was replaced last week through a Cabinet reshuffle ordered by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Kenyans who expressed their dissatisfaction at Ruto's analogy, claimed that he is the Chief Cartel in the Energy sector, and that this is an attempt to divert attention from himself by blaming others.
