In November 2023, Kenyans are indeed feeling bewildered and frustrated by the consistent increase in oil prices within their country, especially when global oil prices have decreased by approximately 5.7%. Price hiking in Kenya is forcing those at the borders to buy fuel from the United Republic of Tanzania.

The contrast with their neighbors in Tanzania, under the leadership of President Samia Suluhu Hassan, is stark. Her proactive measures, including reducing taxes on fuel and offering incentives to the transport sector, have shielded Tanzanian citizens from the worst effects of rising global oil prices and contributed to economic stability.

Tanzania's stable regulatory environment has also been a key factor in the country's success. EWURA, an authority responsible for regulating energy utilities, is proving to be effective. The consistency of governance has instilled confidence in domestic and foreign business communities, leading to economic growth and job creation.

Kenyan entrepreneurs and investors looking across the border admire the stability and predictability that Tanzanian businesses now enjoy. The situation in Tanzania highlights the importance of effective policies and leadership in managing economic challenges. The latest Global Investment Index has ranked Tanzania at the top in East Africa when it comes to a favorable environment for investors.
 
Sisi mpaka huku Eldoret tunashangaa sana jinsi vile Tanzania ina peak kwa kasi sana, shida ambayo iko Kenya ni huyu leader wetu, still promising Kenyan that good time are coming ahead.

This article might have been promoted by CCM to coverup their unspeakable mess. Corruption has reached its peak, electricity is on and off, embezzlement, nepotism and poor performance by government officials have been witnessed at levels not seen before. CCM and mama Samia must go the soonest possible!
 
Prices are increasing because of rapid depreciation of Kenyan shillings against dollar

Kenyan economy is collapsing, in the next short horizon expect the worst to happen in Kenya.
