Saturday, September 7, 2013 - 00:00 -- BY CHARLES MGHENYI

THE Kenya Association of Hotelkeepers and Caterers has faulted the government over the increase of entrance fee on all national parks.

 The entrance fee into national parks will be higher by 16 per cent after the implementation of the VAT. The association's executive officer, Sam Ikwaye has said the new prices will affect domestic tourism. Speaking in Mombasa yesterday, Ikwaye said the new prices will keep many Kenyans away.
