The Kenyan Government has introduced new laws and regulations geared towards streamlining the refilling business of cooking gas cylinders.
Addressing via the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority today the 17th of January 2023, the Kenyan Government has announced the introduction of the Petroleum Act that demands Ksh 1 Million penalty to all Kenyan citizens who will be caught refilling cooking gas cylinders without a license.
The Kenyan Government has notified all Kenyan citizens residing within the Kenyan borders that refilling of cooking gas cylinders is only a preserve of the authorized brands and that only licensed Kenyans should refill cooking gas cylinders.
The Kenyan Government has articulated that the Ksh 1 Million penalty has been institutionalized in a move geared towards streamlining the stocking, refilling and subsequent sell of cooking gas cylinders in the country.
