Newly appointed cabinet secretary to the energy docket Monica Juma has started off on the wrong foot before properly acquainting herself with the new roles barely few days following a mini reshuffle by president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Monica Juma has inherited the mess that was left behind by cabinet secretary Charles Keter who was moved to the ministry of devolution.
The cabinet secretary has been sued by Kenya human rights commission,alongside treasury cabinet secritary Ukur Yattani over recent rise in fuel prices,arguing that the two cabinet secretaries have failed to shield members of the public from the high cost of fuel.
Kenya human rights commission argued that the rise in fuel cost is expected to hurt Kenyans as the cost of living is expected to rise as a result of petrol cost.The petitioner added that the new tax is double to what is being charged at the pump.
Energy and petroleum regulatory authority, attorney general Kihara Kariuki and Kenya revenue authority are also sued for failing to cushion Kenyans from high prices imposed on petrol,diesel and kerosene.
