This move however is downed to make life of drivers and industries using heavy machines very difficult, putting in mind the hard economic times we are in, it is however expected to go down to the common citizens who depend on these operations.
Kenya has seen increased fuel prices just inside a year that life is so difficult for the ordinary man, in spite of the grievances by Kenyans and surprisingly the bodies concerned, government has consistently demanded that each move it makes it always puts the welfare of Kenyans first.
