ERC Managing Director Robert Pavel Oimeke said they will be forced to take action if the transporters do not resume normal operations.

The announcement comes barely a day after motorists began to experience fuel shortages across the country.

Petroleum PS Andrew Kamau had earlier warned dealers and transporters who blocked the road leading to the Konza Depot that their actions are tantamount to economic sabotage.
