Social media sites like facebook, Twitter are awash with comments of netizens blasting the government with some calling it a joke.
According to Kenyans, reducing the price of fuel by sh.1 is a big joke.
“Taking into account the weighted average cost of imported refined petroleum products and in line with Government policy, the changes in the maximum allowed petroleum pump prices in Nairobi are as follows: Super Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene decrease by Kshs 1.00 per litre, Kshs 2.00 per litre and Kshs 1.00 per litre respectively,” said EPRA.

This comes as Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei welcomed the move.
“The prices of petroleum products have dropped significantly which points to a clear trend of a stabilizing economy. This will further make the cost of living affordable, and a prosperous country,” said Cherargei.
