Cheaper Gas Cylinders on Governments Agenda

Posted on : Monday , 12th February 2018

 The government of Kenya will soon rollout a gas cylinder programme to facilitate the affordability of the product to its citizens.

 
Speaking at the Energy Parliamentary Committee meeting at English Point Marina in Mombasa, Energy Cabinet Secretary
Charles Keter said the programme would be rolled out in May.
 
Andrew Kamau, Petroleum Principal Secretary said the government will introduce a 6kg Liquid Petroleum Gas cylinder and put the duty of kerosene on the same level as that of diesel.
 
The PS said price of the cylinder is one of the hurdles of using gas.
 
“There is an anomaly in this business because you and I can never own the cylinder.
 
"It belongs to the oil company and so we just pay deposits. We decided to buy some and reduce the price of a of 6kg cylinder from Sh4,000 to Sh2,000,” Mr Kamau said, urging lawmakers to pass the Petroleum Bill. 
 
The PS stated the government had also planned to enable Kenyans to buy cylinders and pay for the gas daily.
