Ruto Set to Remove All Taxes on Cooking Gas [VIDEO]

  • In a notice to the Ministry of Treasury, President William Ruto on Friday, February 24, stated that he will soon remove all taxes on Liquefied Petroleum (LPG) gas. 

    While speaking in Dongo Kundu, the Head of State explained that the Kenya Kwanza Government is working on an ambitious program to ensure that local cooking gas is made affordable. 

    “In the next three years, all Kenyan houses will have cooking gas which is way affordable,” President Ruto promised. 

    Below is the video:

    At the same time, Ruto ordered top managers at the Kenya Pipeline Company Limited (KPC) to expand local terminal storage capacity of LPG gas to make it available countrywide. 

    While launching the construction of the Taifa Gas LPG terminal in Mombasa, the President asked KPC top managers to increase capacity that will provide reservoirs for cheaper LPG gas from Tanzania. 

    The project that is aimed at lowering the cost of cooking gas in Kenya will see an increase in capacity from 30,000 tonnes to 45,000 tonnes of LPG gas. 

    “I have ordered these officials to ensure that we have enough local capacity to store and process this gas in order to save our mothers from dangerous biomass cooking,” Ruto noted. 

    The President explained that he expects government institutions, including secondary schools, to transit from biomass to LPG gas. 

    “By 2025, we expect all our schools and other institutions to have put in place mechanisms that ensure a modern way of cooking by cooking gas,” Ruto further directed.
