Amid economic recovery after the recess due to the effects of coronavirus, general prices of petroleum including gasoline and diesel were hiked last week. This was after the government removed the subsidies it imposed on the product early this year to cushion the citizens. The regulator's move was met with fury from Kenyans, who believe the increase in petroleum prices will affect other product's prices like transport and foodstuff.

Different politicians have reacted to the ERC's move differently. While a section of politicians feels they were satisfied with the move, to others, an increase in petroleum's general prices will make the lives of Kenyans harder.

It is only a matter of time before the change of fuel prices will be effected, but that will happen after it passes through the legislator. According to some political quotas, they are seeking to stop the implementation of new fuel prices by opposing the change in the parliament.

However, Ahmed Nassir predicts that the opposition to the change in fuel prices might not be possible. This is because according to him, those supposed to be checking the government actions are now within the government. ODM, a party associated with Raila Odinga is in the Handshake with Jubilee, and hence might not oppose the changes in fuel prices.

"High taxation is INEVITABLE...because ODM, ANC, WIPER, Ford Kenya, KANU etc have all joined the government after the handshake. Kenyans If you want low taxation then please tell these politicians who lost the last general election to get out of the JUBILEE govt...and prepare for 2022," wrote the flamboyant city lawyer.

According to the lawyer, unless the parties now associated with the ruling party who lost in the last election changes their government support, Kenyans will have to swallow the bitter bills.
