Indeed, even before the warmed discussion and whines from Kenyans on the execution of 16% Value Added Tax (VAT) could die down, Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has slapped Kenyans with new expanded fuel costs.
The new fuel costs which considers the 16% VAT will be successful as from Saturday, September 1st.
In an announcement discharged by ERC on Sartuday, September 1, Nairobi drivers will fork out KSh 127.80 for a liter of petroleum, Mombasa KSh 124.49, Nakuru 128.46, Eldoret 129.64, and Kisumu KSh 129.71.
For diesel, Nairobi drivers are relied upon to pay KSh 115.08, Mombasa KSh 111.78, Nakuru KSh 115.79, Eldoret KSh 117.15 and Kisumu KSh 117.22 for each liter.
Prior, as announced by Exposeke.com, National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich expelled Parliament’s turn to suspend for a long time the 16% Value Added Tax (VAT) on oil based goods.
Be that as it may, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi while restricting the costs faulted the high rate of debasement in government at the expanded fuel costs.
Matatu Owners Association (MOA) demonstrated they would build passages with between KSh 10 and KSh 30 relying upon courses to take care of for the expanded expense.
Irate Kenyans couldn’t quit grumbling about the Jubilee administration for the tough occasions.
