Kenyan authorities have reportedly deported Rubis Kenya Managing Director and CEO Jean-Christian Bergeron to France.
Nation reports that the government canceled with immediate effect Bergeron’s work permit and ordered his deportation from Kenya.
Bergeron is accused of economic sabotage due to the ongoing fuel crisis in the country that has seen the prices of the commodity increase, with Kenyans spending hours in queues at gas stations in search of fuel.
Following a meeting with President Kenyatta, Energy Cabinet Secretary Dr. Monica Juma recommended sanctions against oil marketing companies accused of hoarding fuel, leading to a shortage across the country.
The move comes a day after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) noted that some oil marketers were selling fuel meant for the Kenyan market outside the country.
Four oil marketing companies are set to face punitive measures from the government, including reducing the capacity of fuel that they import into the country.
To avert such a fuel crisis in the future, the government also plans to boost the capacity of National Oil to ensure it has a bigger role in the fuel retail business.
Rubis, the third-largest oil marketer in Kenya, is among energy companies under investigation for hoarding fuel and causing an artificial shortage.
Rubis is a France-based international company specializing in the storage, distribution, and sale of petroleum, and liquefied petroleum gas.
Rubis is really an International oil hoarding company.
We deported this one, how many more are in the country whose sole purpose is to sabotage our economy.
And Kenya gives visas to all when they have already arrived in the country. No background check....
Are we stupid or are we stupid?
How many other countries give visas on arrival?
What a stupid policy.
Time for separation,revelation and restoration!!
I would say, Good Ridance! These stupid white people come to Kenya with mentality to exploit. Deport the other whites in the leadership. Call me racist but let the truth be told.
Wait a minute! Wasn't he supposed to be charged in a court of law for this economic sabotage? Then go to jail,serve his 20 years, then get deported like they do to our citizens abroad? Bure kabisa Kenya.
What a bunch of low IQs we have for leaders? Do we need a French man for storage, sale, and distribution of petroleum and gas in the country? Really?
