Fuel prices will go down from December – President Ruto



Kenyans have been reassured by President William Ruto that fuel costs will decrease starting next month.

Speaking on Saturday following the opening of the Sagana-Kathaka-Thiguku road construction in Ndia, Kirinyaga County, the President acknowledged the recent increase in fuel costs but said that the government is taking the necessary steps to guarantee that they decline.

“Ingawa bei duniani kote inapanda, tunafuata vile inapanda na tumetafuta namna ili bei isipite mahali Wakenya wengi wataumia. Mmeona kuanzia mwezi huu hiyo bei imeanza kuteremka,” he said.

“Mwezi ujao itateremka zaidi, na mwezi huo mwingine hivyo hivyo…mpaka tuahakikishe tunaweza kuendesha uchumi wetu vile inafaa.”

The head of state claimed that a lack of sufficient currency circulation in the market was the reason why most gas stations did not have enough fuel when he assumed office.

He claimed to have subsequently discussed the fuel and dollar issue with the governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), assuring them that there will be an ample supply in the nation moving forward.

“Bei ya mafuta sasa tumeanza kuishughulikia. Bei ya mafuta imepanda kila mahali, lakini siku nilipoingia, mlikua mnaona magari yamejaa petrol stations kukiwa na uhaba wa mafuta,” he said.

“Niliongea na watu wa Saudi Arabia na UAE nikawaambia watupe mafuta tuuze na shilingi ya Kenya na baada ya miezi sita sisi tutawalipa. Hivyo ndio maana Kenya haikosi mafuta.”

We are not taxing till numbers – KRA



We are not taxing till numbers – KRA

The public is being cautioned by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) about a widely shared post on the internet that purports to show that the taxman is now looking into Till numbers.

KRA made it clear in an official statement on X that these allegations are wholly untrue and advised the public to be caution when it comes to possible fraud.

“Not true. Till numbers are NOT subject to taxation, and KRA does not collect any such taxes. Beware of fraudsters purporting to do any of the above.”

The revenue authority directed citizens to verify KRA staff by dialling *572# or through their official website

In September, the government proposed amending the Data Protection Act of 2019 to exclude KRA from its regulations, aiming to facilitate access to information.

The proposed change was to empower the tax agency to retrieve data from Kenyan citizens, including real-time details of financial transactions conducted through mobile money.

Tragic explosion in Mexico leaves Kenyan man in a coma



A Kenyan man residing in Mexico is currently fighting for his life following a devastating explosion.

The precise whereabouts and origin of the blast are presently undisclosed, along with any knowledge of additional casualties.

It has been reported that the man, identified as Francis Kamau Chege from Kiambu County, Kenya, is currently in an induced coma. Regrettably, he was left unattended at the medical facility for several days, as his relatives were unaware of the incident until they unexpectedly came across pleas for aid on social media.

Chege’s girlfriend, who initially shared the details on the internet, had sought assistance to notify his parents and other kin.

Chege’s family from Githunguri, Kiambu County has expressed their deep appreciation to the online community for spreading the important news.

They are relieved that his severe burn injuries have promptly been brought to their attention. Meanwhile, they have reached out to his girlfriend and the relevant authorities as efforts are being made to contact officials in Washington for urgent assistance.

Mexico does not have a Kenyan embassy and instead depends on the embassy located in the capital of the United States. The family is thankful for the swift dissemination of this vital information. Activist Simon Mwangi draws attention to a series of explosions that have taken place in Mexico recently.

These explosions have been triggered by gas-related incidents and natural disasters caused by volcanic activity.

“Thank you for speedy sharing, the father and brother have reached out. We have notified the contacts in Washington for a quick response. Be blessed good people,” activist Simon Mwangi wrote.
