Nairobians can now fill up

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 6 – Most filling stations in Nairobi now have petrol unlike the past five days that has seen a crippling fuel crisis in the city.

Capital News established that fuel was readily available in most fuel stations.

"There is plenty of fuel today. Everything is fine. We are happy that the government has taken action. We also want them to take action on the fuel prices" one consumer at filling station in Nairobi said.

At KenolKobil filling stations, there was a rush by consumers to enjoy the marketer\’s fuel promotion, where unleaded premium is retailing at Sh109.10 down from Sh111 while low sulphur diesel is being sold at Sh103.40.

Meanwhile, Kenyans are now calling upon the government, to take control of the petrol prices to cushion them against the high costs of living.

In the past one week, Kenyans have experienced highly inflated fares coupled with traffic snarl ups along major highways and anxiety over fuel shortage.

The public outcry led to President Kibaki to summon Energy Minister Kiraitu Murungi and the Minister for Finance Uhuru Kenyatta among other top government to find a solution to fuel crisis.

Initially, the government had threatened to cancel the licenses of oil marketers who decided to sabotage the supply of petrol that had lead to fuel shortage in the country.
