PRIVATE CARS AND FIRE EXTINGUISHERS LAW

Private cars. Any demand for fire extinguisher, first aid kits, tow ropes, jumpers and torches  is wrong. Private car owners can only carry such gadgets on their own choice. The law is clear on this.

The Office has contacted NTSA and they assured on the same.

What as private motorist you must carry are triangular lifesafers.

By nature of their public business and risks buses and matatu are required to carry the first two under section 56 (1)

Enjoy your day hustle free.

 

 

 

FUEL PRICE FOR PETROL REDUCE BY KES 9- 14th October 2015

Motorists’ petition was quite telling. The viewpoints were strong, varied and hard-hitting. All the signed petitions were presented to Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in hard copies and a covering letter. MAK take this opportunity to thank all of you for stating your rights of urgent need for a fair market. Together we are stronger. Earlier Newsletter sampled some of the comments.

The big number that signed the petition is enough proof that motorists will not allow again anyone whether a public agency or private one to take them for granted. Under the organization of Motorist Association of Kenya we hope to achieve more.

 

LOW WORLD PRICES & UNFAIR LOCAL FUEL PRICES

The system of fuel pricing in Kenya leaves a lot of questions answered. The fact that vehicle owners do not usually feel the benefits of low world prices and arbitral increase of road levy is proof enough that the playground is not level.

The present fuel pricing is seriously skewed in favour of downstream marketers and upstream players. Marketers’ profit margin is marked up high by Energy Regulation Commission (ERC). According to marketers such boon (super profits) was not to be the work of the ERC.  The formula used is far from what was enacted into law in 2010, which was achieved after six years of hard lobbying. The cost of landing, transport and guided overheads was set to determine the costing, however this is no longer the approach. The regulator has made fuel prices unpredictable and a constant source of anguish for motorists and economy. The bane and insincerity of the matter is, world prices have remained low but local pump prices have escalated under all false reasons and excuses.

Fuel Petition By Motorists Update.

September ERC review did see fuel prices remain constant for petrol while diesel prices dropped by Kes 3. This can be attributed to the petition by vehicle owners who pressured the regulator to stop the widely disproved monthly increase. MAK forwarded a comprehensive document signed by the complainants. With such unity we can be able to get fair market practices. 

Those who are yet to sign in the petition are urged to do so. Motorists office is regularly updating those who have joined via their emails on the progress of fair prices advocacy

 

ERC JULY 2015 FUEL REVIEW WRONG.

Energy Regulatory Commission fuel increase on July 14 2015 was errorneous and false. The claim that the increase was influenced by weak shilling flies of the wall, since the imports were done at end of May and early June. Going by the lag time. That is the present fuel being sold was bought  when the shilling had not depreciated.
MAK having lobbied for reforms which brought about present fuel controls believes that ERC have reneged on the objective of the original idea of fuel pricing and their purpose as a regulatory body. The essence of a reliable oil industry was to do away with frequent and sudden fluctuations which do not only drain motorists’ purse but destabilize the economy.
