As a motorists body, we are utterly disappointed by fuel marketers for hoarding fuel in anticipation of higher prices. We are actually puzzled by the callous act.

The multinationals seem to be creeping back to yester year’s malevolence of taking vehicle owners for granted. The widespread systematic failure to supply fuel to the needy motorists has not only badly inconvenienced drivers but has exposed them to mugging along the roadside at night after their vehicles stall.  Our patrol team confirmed the far-reaching problem where no fuel was found at Shell Roysambu and Shell Thome which is close to our offices. Our team also found Kobil Flyover near Kinungi and uplands Kobil petrol stations to be out of stock of the essential commodity last night.

We commend Total petrol stations, Gulf Oil and Astrol petrol stations for rescuing motorists from the distressful circumstances by providing adequate supply. We are also happy with the independent fuel stations for supplying motorists with fuel. As a reward, we therefore take this opportunity to advise motorists to support by buying fuel only from those who have not withheld fuel and punish the hoarders by boycotting their products. Motor vehicle owners should not be duped by public relation promotions by same brands.

Energy Regulatory Commission should take action against the petrol stations and ensure that National Oil Corporation of Kenya assumes its role of regulating the market.
