Daniel Kiptoo, the Director General of the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) confirmed the development via a notice on Thursday.

The new prices are to take effect from now to April 14th according to the latest pricing schedule and are intended to bring relief to Kenyan citizens amidst the rising cost of living.
