Kenya's energy regulator has cancelled a petroleum products import licence for the country's main dealers' association. The regulator has accused its members of intimidating other transporters as part of a strike against a new fuel tax. In protest against the new law, the Kenya Independent Petroleum Dealers' Association had blocked fuel depots in Nairobi and Mombasa -- leading to fuel shortages in most parts of the country. The fuel tax is part of a government bid to finance key priorities while narrowing a fiscal deficit that could jeopardise a deal with the International Monetary Fund.
