MAK DISSAPOINTMENT BECAUSE OF ENERGY REGULATORY COMMISSION LATEST REVIEW

We at Motorists Association of Kenya least expected an increase in prices this month. During the last review Energy Regulatory Authority promised three favourable reviews. This was after MAK complaint that prices were not coming down fast as they should. We register our disappointment as body representing our registered members. The calculations are not convincing to us especially where petrol rises with a significant margin of a whooping Kes 4.75 against diesel Kes 0.68 a litre. What informed the lopsided calculation with fuel type disparities and seemingly discrepancies. It is our sincere hope that the new prices were informed by market forces as we would dread any other reasons.

The construction of Outer Ring into a dual carriageway will now start after many false starts. Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) has said the construction project will take three years. The road starts from the Eastern bypass junction at Taj Mall up to Thika Road junction at GSU headquarters. The project is jointly funded by the Kenyan government and Africa Development Bank (AfDB) estimated to cost Sh8.5 billion. 11.5 per cent funding coming from the Government and 88.5 per cent being funded by the bank. KURA has now embarked on consultancy to do Road Asset Management System covering pavements, bridges, roadside furniture and slopes, and traffic control devices. The consultancy will develop and implement a Road Maintenance Management System and  mapping system.

 

Motorists using major highways in Kenya would from March start paying for using public hitherto open for public use. This according to Infrastructure Principal Secretary John Mosonik                         The funds collected would be used for road maintenance which currently is funded by road maintenance levy, fuel levy and road levy. According to reliable sources Toll roads proposal will involve private-public partnerships.                                                                                        Mombasa-Nairobi-Nakuru highway, Thika Road and Southern by-pass public Roads will be the first to turned into private Roads.                                                                                                    In the past Motorists Association of Kenya had opposed the system arguing that the systems has been phased out in Europe for being unpopular with its citizens. This time MAK club which charges members Kes 500 to join and 3 000 Annual subscription is not happy on behalf its registered members.                                                                                                                           Toll Stations were replaced by the more effective fuel levy in 1990s.
