Kenya pipeline recalls Adulterated Super Petrol, promises investigation
SEE ALSO :Amaco got plum KPC deal without biddingOil dealers and some KPC technicians said half of the petrol sold from 5am yesterday was actually water. Joe Sang', the KPC managing director, did not respond to phone calls or text messages. But a senior employee who did not wish to be named confirmed the crisis and said it was being addressed. “We ensured that the product did not reach the market. We recalled all the trucks that had been loaded between 4am and 8am after discovering the fuel had been adulterated,” said the official. "It would have been a major problem if the tankers were for export and the adulteration discovered when they were already across the borders. However, they were all supplying the local market." Truck driver Bernard Wasike said he had loaded 3,000 litres only to discover on reaching his destination that half of it was water.
