Azimio party leader Raila Odinga has again criticized President Ruto’s government while addressing Mumias residents during the burial of Kakamega Governor Fernandes Barasa’s mother Mama Philemona Mutelwa.
In yet another brutal attack, Raila accused the head of state of lying to Kenyans despite having made huge promises during his campaign period.
While expressing concern, the ODM party leader said he was bothered by how the government made a U-turn on the interest-free funds promised to the ‘hustlers’ and their failure to lower prices of essential commodities as they had promised.
He further called out President Ruto and his deputy over their plan to increase tax rates & their proposal to increase NHIF, NSSF contributions; which he fears will be implemented without allowing public participation.
If Ruto’s plan is implemented, Kenyans will have to dig deeper into their pockets with citizens earning 50,000 Kenyan Shillings being deducted an estimated 10,503 while those earning 100,000 Kenyan shillings being deducted an estimated 28,028.
What do you think about the proposal by Ruto’s government to have tax, NHIF and NSSF contributions increased?
