According to statements Wahome made on Thursday, September 15th, the president wanted fuel prices reduced, but he was shocked by the report he received from the Ministry of Petroleum.
“I am privy to the report that the President received on the cost of fuel and it was nearly impossible for him to reduce the cost but it will only be a matter of time before the issue is sorted,” she stated.
Wahome urged Kenyans to be patient with the new administration, saying that President William Ruto has a long-term strategy to lower fuel prices and, by consequence, lower the cost of living.
“Kenyans should not despair but should continue working hard as we wait for the govt to make enough money to make fuel available at pocket-friendly costs, personally, I understand the plight of the people and I also feel the pinch of buying the fuel at that high cost. We know that the government is new and we are optimistic that it will create policies to enable the people to have higher purchasing power and lower their living costs,” she stated.
