Kenyan Police, Cartels Blamed For Fuel Theft

Fuel siphoning on the Naivasha-Nakuru-Kericho road is reportedly not a secret. It takes place even during the day. Cartels make millions of shillings from the business, according to some Nakuru residents. The cartels are allegedly made up of youths, petrol station owners and county government officials who are reportedly protected by rogue police officers.
