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. 



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 


New Excise Duty for Cars & Fuel a Big Worry

The present administration is making the life of vehicle owners so difficult. The new Excise Duty for imported cars introduced by the National Treasury which increases duty on second hand vehicles is so punitive. This is because those who will suffer most are small car importers. A small car importer will now cough Kes 150 000 more. Duty that used to be around Kes 50 will now be Kes 200 000 plus all other earlier taxes especially VAT which is calculated at the excise aggregate figure. This will increase too, calculated at Kes 200.  Motorists Association fears this will affect transport of persons in the working class category. It is a pity that the government now targets motorists alone in its mission to raise funds for its bloated government illicit recurrent budget. One sector should not be forced to foot the expenditure of lavish lifestyles of political class alone. All Kenyans should be charged taxes uniformly. We are very sad and not happy with the government on this.

As an association with a big number of registered members we feel slighted again by the increase of petrol by Kes 10.3 and diesel Kes 3.7. This is callous double taxation. High taxes means vehicle owner plight has been ignored.  

 It's a high time to call upon the government to recheck its statistics and consider the plight of the common citizen by decreasing the high cost of living. The association also feels it’s unconstitutional to make changes of the budget at this time of the year especially failure to involve the public in budget formulation.

President Kenyatta on 23rd November 2015 in a press conference declared corruption which has thretened to make Kenya a failed State a National Security Threat.

Transport sector is one of the most notorious for the vice.

From road contractors cutting deals with engineers to do shoody roads, skewed traffic enforcement where bribe giving and taking is the order, cash bail scams, fake inspection of vehicles, alco blow and speed checks rampant corruption, counterfeits, importation scams, fuel adulteration, fake oils and greases, lack of paid for road furniture road signs, inflated road cost by con tractors the list is just endless...
