Mr Daniel Kiptoo, the Director general of the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory authority (EPRA) has left Mps egg faced after he dismissed their suggestions that the body is responsible for the high prices of fuel witnessed recently.
Kiptoo told off the lawmakers, and directly implicated them for the suffering that Kenyans are going through after fuel prices were increased.
Politicians, aware of what awaits them in the 2022 general election, have been shading crocodile tears on social media, distancing themselves from the hike in fuel prices.
A section of furious Kenyans have been vocal on social media promising to send home all the lawmakers who supported a motion in Parliament that led to their current tribulations.
However, Garissa town Mp Aden Duale defended the VAT policy on petroleum products which has been named to be the cause of fuel price hike, saying the President was forced into it by IMF.
Duale was leader of Majority when the policy was voted through in Parliament.
