Rubis Energy CEO Jean-Christian deported.

The Kenyan government has expelled Rubis Energy CEO Jean-Christian Bergeron from his native France.

Bergeron was fired on the grounds of national security and economic sabotage after he was allegedly involved in oil storage allegations that led to an oil shortage crisis across the country.

The eviction order was signed by Interior Minister Fred Matiang’i and will take effect immediately.

Earlier, the Petroleum and Energy Regulatory Authority (EPRA) promised to take strong action against any oil trader who concentrated on oil.

His dismissal comes just days after the government issued a warning to oil companies that deliberately cut their supply to local oil stores during export to foreign countries.

In a letter to the Minister of Energy and Petroleum, EPRA called for the approval of the CMO, proposing a reduction in their exports.

“EPRA has analyzed daily oil loading over the past four weeks and found that a large number of OMCs, in the period under review, have prioritized export loads while the domestic market is left to face constant supply,” the statement said. that was read in part. .

“Special attention should be paid to reducing the supply of capacity to all OMCs that increased their transport levels beyond their normal level during the crisis period,” EPRA added.

Although Ksh 34.4 billion has been disbursed by the Treasury to pay the Ksh 13 billion bill owed by the WTO in the payment of subsidies and other bills, fuel shortages continue to be considered in most parts of the country.
