President William Ruto has announced that Kenyans can expect a substantial decrease in fuel prices by Sh10.

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) is scheduled to release its monthly review of oil prices on Sunday, April 14.

Addressing the congregation during Sunday service at ACK St. Peter's Cathedral in Nyeri, Ruto expressed optimism about the forthcoming reduction, stating that it would mark a significant milestone for the nation.

"Today, the price of Unga that was Sh200 is almost hitting Sh100, the shilling has strengthened against the dollar," he remarked.

"Fuel prices were up, but today it is going down by Sh10. All this is because we are making the right decisions and not just popular ones," added the President.

He urged leaders nationwide to maintain focus, emphasizing the historic opportunity they have to transform the country.

"The countries ahead of us have put an end to poverty, industrialized, and made progress—all because they made the right decisions and their leaders led from the front," Ruto affirmed.

The President's comments followed Government Spokesperson Isaac Mwaura's announcement on Sunday that Kenyans should anticipate a significant announcement regarding the reduction of fuel prices.

Mwaura stated that EPRA would deliver the eagerly anticipated announcement at 3 pm.

"A major announcement on the reduction of fuel prices shall be made today at 3 pm by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Agency (EPRA)," Mwaura stated on X, formerly Twitter.

He highlighted that the expected reduction in fuel prices would alleviate the high cost of living, a concern voiced by many Kenyans.

"This will significantly reduce the cost of living in the country for hustlers and Kenyans at large," Mwaura emphasized.

"Indeed, Kenya Kwanza, led by President William Ruto, is delivering on its promises. Stay tuned!"

The last review of fuel prices by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) was in mid-March.

During the March review, EPRA lowered the petrol pump price by Sh7.21 per litre.

In the same review, the Authority also reduced diesel prices by Sh5.09 per litre and kerosene prices by Sh4.49 per litre.
