Kenya Roads Board proposes increase of fuel levy which could see fuel prices rise
The kenya roads board is proposing to increase the fuel levy from the current nine shillings. The board, which is charged with road maintenance and construction, wants the government to raise the levy by a minimum of three shillings which could push it to 13 shillings. The levy is a user charge on petrol and diesel that if implemented could see fuel prices rise in the country. The roads board claims that road maintenance costs had skyrocketed to an estimated 50 billion shillings a year, hence the need to increase its capacity to raise resources.
