Kenya Insights reported that the ship (MT Jag Prarena) docked at the Port of Mombasa on December 30 and was offloaded for nearly three days.

OMAK said that Gulf had imported the petrol contrary to the petroleum act 2019, with the importation and offloading of the cargo being done outside the Open Tender System (OTS).

The act prohibits private imports of refined petroleum products using state-owned common user facilities.
