Kiharu member of Parliament Ndindi Nyoro while addressing the issue of increased fuel prices has warned the Kenya Energy Regulatory Team against increasing the fuel prices everytime they review the prices. According to Ndindi, the work of the Energy Regulatory board is to review fuel prices and not to increase it.
Ndindi has observed that the coronavirus pandemic has caused serious problems to the Kenyan public and that prices of important commodities should be checked to cushion the common Mwananchi.
In the same vain, former prime minister Raila Odinga and the ODM party leader has shared in Nyoro's sentiments saying fuel prices should be lowered immediately to cushion the common man.
According to Raila, many Kenyans have suffered and continue to suffer under the coronavirus ravaged economy and must not be added more pain. "Kenyans who have been struggling to put food on the table since the onset of coronavirus now stand to have their collective plight worsened by the increased fuel prices," Raila said.
Several other leaders have condemned the increase, including presidential aspirant Wanjigi and DP Ruto.
