New Vivo energy boss affirms steady fuel supply for Ugandans ahead of Kenya elections

By Patricia Osman

Gilbert Assi, the newly appointed Managing director Vivo Energy Uganda, assures Ugandans that plans are in place to stock enough fuel as Kenya elections close in.

Speaking at his unveiling in Kampala Mr. Assi says there is no cause for alarm adding that they are watching the events carefully and are aware of the threats that come with such an exercise.

His comment comes at a time when Parliament’s Natural Resources committee advises Government to stock enough quantities of fuel ahead of the August 2017 Election in Kenya.

The legislators are optimistic that refilling the reserves will secure supply of petroleum products in the event of any disruptions and eventualities.

Mr Assi who takes over from Hans Paulsen had been group head of distribution.

He promises to keep the company at the number one position by continuing to invest heavily in areas of fuel quality, road safety, Education and environment protection.

Mr. Paulsen has now been promoted to a new senior role in the Vivo Energy Group where he will be working across all countries in Africa where Vivo Energy operates on a new project to improve the company’s business among others tasks.
