The deal which is valued at Ksh 35 billion was signed in Tel Aviv by the PS who represented the Ministry of Energy. The whole amount was allegedly pre-paid to the company with those in the know now claiming that the amount must have been meant for something else and not the stated reason.

The deal will affect the fuel prices for sometime as ERC tariffs were to be used as the guarantee for the deal.

Efforts to get comments from the Energy Ministry, KPC or ERC has been unsuccessful as all the concerned parties feigned ignorance of the existence of the deal.
