It is emerging that Rubis Energy CEO Jean-Christian Bergeron is to be deported by the government of Kenya.

This comes after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) promised that it would act sternly with oil marketers hoarding fuel in the country.

This information was revealed by TV reporter Yvonne Okwara who went on to add, 

"EPRA cited some oil marketers for diverting some of their loadings to export leaving the local market to suffer intermittent supply and proposed reducing their quota for the next 3 import cycles."

She finished off by stating that Kenya Pipeline had confirmed that they had enough stocks for Kenyans.

"Meanwhile, Kenya Pipeline confirmed that they have enough fuel stocks for both local and regional consumption. Leaving no doubt on whom they were pinning the blame regarding the fuel crisis witnessed over the last 3 weeks."

On Monday, almost all petrol stations along the Kisumu-Nairobi highway were closed. Oil suppliers claimed that the government owes Sh20 billion but the state says it owes them Sh13 billion and on April 4 it released Sh8.2 billion.
