Prices and Cost–A section of Kenya Kwanza leaders now want President William Ruto to re-introduce fuel subsidy following back lash from Kenyans.
In their Parliamentary Group meeting held at the Statehouse on Tuesday November 7, a source privy to the meeting, divulged how this proceeded and what the head of State told them.
The source noted that most of them asked the commander-in-Chief to reconsider the return of fuel subsidy because their popularity was quickly dwindling.
They argued that the current difficult economic status affecting the country had portrayed them as leaders who had already abandoned the ‘Hustler narrative’ what is not going well with their supporters.
“The MPs openly raised their concerns that if fuel prices and other basic commodities keep rising, then they are risking their popularity heading to 2027,” an anonymous source shared with the media.
The lawmakers who converged in hundreds at the Statehouse, said it was now clear to their supporters in their Constituencies that, if something is not done today, people to blame are the leaders.
But in his response to the MPs, President Ruto cited the recently-introduced fuel stabilization fund as a temporary and quick remedy as opposed to the return of subsidies.
He said there is nothing much he can do to stop the increasing fuel prices because it is as a result of global factors which Kenya is part of.
Ruto also said to them that they(MPs) do not have to be popular all the time so long as they are popular ‘where and when it matters’.
He used the opportunity to ask them to support Haiti exercise even as some MPs remain skeptical on the mission.
