COUNTY GOVERNMENT OF NAIROBI APPROACH ON YELLOW BOXES WRONG & ILLEGAL

County Government of Nairobi is once again wrong by unilaterally decreeing to fine motorists for offences of being caught on yellow boxes. The imaginary fines are illegal as they are nowhere in the statute books. The boxes are a new trap to raise revenue and graft more whose aim is to increase the misery of Nairobi residents on façade of decongesting the poorly planned town.

KENHA Plan to Reintroduce Toll Roads unacceptable & Terribly Wrong

The intention to charge vehicle owners more to use public roads is unwise and unjustifiable. To reintroduce Toll Roads which were replaced by fuel levy paid upfront for every litre of fuel paid by motorists is wrong.

Currently taxes targeted at the vehicle owner are callously high. Therefore, within 21 days we shall meet to decide next cause of action to protect interest of registered members. 

Tolling a section of Kenyans for usage of public roads amounts to subjecting some sections of citizens to additional movement costs contrary to the Constitution which stipulates freedom of movement.

The toll charges will be pure double taxation.

The government should in the first place make good use of the money at its disposal which is being misused by present public private partnership road construction system riddled with ineptitude and graft.

The government should copy The People’s Republic of China model where construction companies are state owned thus cutting costs by half.

At Motorists Association of Kenya we shall never allow this prejudice.

We have written to Kenya National Highway Authority KeNHA the protest letter with ultimatum. 

 

KENYA MPYA MANY ACCIDENTS & CARELESSNESS

Kenya Mpya accidents on Thika Road over time are caused by arrogance, bullying culture and love for speed. The governors do not work any longer since the vehicles beat cars which do 100Kph. Lets hope the protest by Thika Road users will see the management take safety seriously 

 

ERC Ordered to Lower Fuel Prices by Energy CS Charles Keter

The Cabinet Secretary has sided with motorists protesting Energy Regulation Commission failure to set local pump prices to reflect the huge fall in world crude prices. He faulted the calculations given as reason in arriving at the prices.  “Fixed figures used by ERC to calculate the allowed losses energy distributors get is a figure that is not actual on the ground” Said the Minister“It is ridiculous crude oil has gone down, yet price of petroleum products is still too high”  The Cabinet Secretary is the new Minister for Energy and Petroleum. He is reported to have refused to buy the excuses of not lowering prices in an introductory session and strategic discussion at ERC Hqs at Upperhill.The pricing is determined by narrow data instead of real market dynamics decisions. The Energy Cabinet Secretary warned ERC that he will not approve additional costs for energy.“I want you to know, I will not approve any additional amount that will have an impact on the consumers.”  “I ll fast track energy projects to make the country’s energy cost competitive to attract investors” He said.  Principal Secretary Joseph Njoroge promised in the meeting that, the ministry will support ERC to fix the factor correct pricing to meet real citizens price expectation.  The Minister now joins World Bank, Consumer Federation, Kenya manufacturers Motorists Association and other industry players in setting correct fuel prices.
