Fuel shortage as petroleum distributors protest 16 percent VAT | Coastweek

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Workers at a fuel station push a vehicle [left] after it ran out of fuel in Nairobi, capital of Kenya. A crippling shortage of fuel now looms in the country after petroleum distributors went on strike on Monday to protest the introduction of the 16 percent increment tax on the product. The move by the government to impose a 16 percent value added tax (VAT) on fuel price will increase the cost of living and slow growth of business in the country.
