Baringo Senator Gideon Moi says his party will join and support a proposed petition by Matungulu MP Stephen Mule to have the Energy Regulation Commission lower current fuel prices which have caused an uproar among Kenyans. Speaking over the weekend in Machakos, Senator Moi said the genesis of current fuel prices woes can be traced back to 2017, and parliamentarians still had an opportunity to correct the mistake.
”We will support that petition to ensure that it goes through. Let’s not be naïve, let’s go back and find out the genesis of these problems we are facing in the country. We can’t wash the truth, and we can’t try to whitewash and blame others when we exactly know where the problem of this country began in 2017,” the KANU chairman said.
MP for Matungulu a WiperDemocratic Movement member, and one of the OKA affiliates said he will petition the government to lower the fuel prices which have pressed Kenyans.
“As an MP, I am bringing a petition in parliament to make sure that Energy Regulatory Authority brings the fuel prices down. And as OKA, we will team up with parliament to ensure that fuel prices in this country are not exorbitant,” he said.
On OKA politics, Senator Moi dismissed rumors of a split in the new alliance following revelations his party (KANU) had decided to chart their own political course.
”I want to confirm to you that as OKA principals we are together. We are together with Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka who is my personal friend despite also being a friend to our Moi family. We are also together with Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula and Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi,” Moi said.
”We know that the presidency will come from OKA team. I am calling on our brothers to join us, we come together and rectify lots of bad ills in our country,” he added.
