Kenya Pipeline Warns of Fuel Shortages

Published on

A letter from Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC) to Petroleum principal secretary Andrew Kamau has expressed concern about an impending fuel scarcity.

The imminent catastrophe, according to KPC’s Managing Director Macharia Irungu, is due to the government not transferring cash allocated for fuel subsidies.

In addition, he bemoaned that the transportation and clearance of cargo had been slowed down because merchants are taking their sweet time picking up shipments from the Kipevu Oil Storage Facility and other storage places.

Because of the backlog, Irungu said that oil terminals cannot accept any further shipments from overseas.

According to a letter sent by the MD, several fuel stores in Nairobi and other parts of Western Kenya have run out of stock, threatening an imminent fuel crisis in those regions.
