Speaking at the new terminal, Energy CS Davis Chirchir said the consignment arrived under the Government to Government (G-G) arrangement.

“This is the fifth ship which is offloading diesel, behind us we have PMS under the G-G offloading Super Petrol. The G-G is working, we are progressively seeing the Kenyan shilling gaining strength which was the objective,” said CS Chirchir.
