Parade protest

 

After Dr. Fred Matiangi said this about fuel prices, Kenyans got some good news.

Dr. Fred Matiang'i, the Secretary of State for the Interior, has given many Kenyans high hopes this afternoon. Kenyans' protests and laments about rising fuel prices have been heard, according to Matiang'i, and are being thoroughly investigated.

He believes that petrol prices will fall this week as a result of the government's decision to convene a crisis conference to evaluate fuel costs.

Dr. Fred Matiang'i will serve as the meeting's chairman, with the meeting's major focus being on possible solutions to the problem of rising gasoline prices.

The crisis conference takes place in the wake of protests by Kenyan bodaboda riders, who have been crying about the losses they have suffered in their daily activities. The price of a litre of petrol has recently risen to ksh. 140.

It has long been a rule that when the price of fuel rises, the price of basic commodities rises as well, because fuel is a necessary component of production, making life difficult for regular Kenyans.
