, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 24 – Petroleum dealers and oil marketers are this afternoon expected to hold a crucial meeting with Energy CS Charles Keter following the refusal by members of the Kenya Independent Petroleum Dealers Association to deliver fuel since yesterday.

The association has asked its members to keep their trucks off the road in protest of an enforcement of dawn to dusk ban that limits distribution of fuel products to day time.

The Association’s Chairman Joseph Karanja told Capital Business that the strike will go on until the Energy Regulatory Commission suspends the enactment of the law that was enforced following the Naivasha tragedy where a tanker exploded claiming over 40 lives.

Sources have told Capital Business that no petrol station in Nairobi has received fuel from yesterday afternoon.
