Peter Salasya: Other Countries Are Expensive To Live in Compared to Kenya

In terms of cost of living, Mumias East Member of Parliament Peter Salasya asserts that Kenya is the best place to live out of all the places he has visited.

According to the legislature on his X account, he looked up the cost of the shoes he was wearing and found that it was Sh4000 higher in South Africa than in Kenya.

The Member of Parliament has been touring many African nations, and he has not refrained from stating that the expense of living in each place he has been reminds him why Kenya is the best place to live.

He went on to say that no one would wish to leave Kenya in search of better opportunities if the cost of fuel was reduced.

Salasya urged people to cherish their nation, describing it as the best and a conducive place for living.

The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) of Kenya reported in the middle of October that fuel prices had been revised to the highest level in the nation’s history, with a liter of gasoline now retailing for Sh218.

The rising cost of fuel in turn caused the prices of other items to rise, a development that infuriated residents who bemoaned the high expense of living.

Cost increases that have been attributed to the worldwide gasoline shortage situation have been felt in Kenya and South Africa.

Research indicates that the cost of living in South Africa is around 14% higher than that of Kenya.

According to an eNCA story from September 12, 2023, some South Africans were upset about the sharp increase in fuel costs.

Many people were struggling as a result of the country’s fuel price hike, which also raised the cost of other necessities including food, transportation, and power.

In October, Action SA voiced serious concerns over what it described as a substantial rise in monthly inflation from 4.8% in August to 5.4% in October, along with price increases for food and fuel.

They claimed it will increase consumer pressure on South Africans, many of whom are already dealing with a dilemma related to rising living expenses.
