Kenyans can now submit their views challenging hiked fuel prices either through a written memorandum or during a public hearing slated for September 28.
This will be done through the National Assembly Finance and National Planning Committee which has kicked off a 14-day inquiry.
The Clerk of the National Assembly, Michael Sialai, says the submissions should address themselves to a petition by Antony Manyara and John Wangai seeking to abolish the 8 per cent Value Added Tax, whose implementation has led to Price increase on petroleum products.
The committee is also expected to inquire into the implementation of the Fuel Stabilization Fund and establish why the Kenya Petroleum Refineries Limited is still a factor in petroleum pricing yet it no longer refines crude oil.
House Speaker, Justin Muturi, directed that the committee led by Homabay county woman representative, Gladys Wanga, attach a draft bill to the report proposing legislative interventions to reverse the situation.
