President William Ruto intensified his efforts yesterday to garner support for his government’s controversial proposals including the Finance Bill which has attracted criticism.
Demonstrating his strong commitment to ensuring the Bill’s success, Ruto cautioned members of his political group, the Kenya Kwanza brigade, against voting against it once it is presented in the House.
“I am waiting to see the MPs who will go against the government’s plan to give their voters employment. We want to see and know those going against this Finance Bill,” the President said in Narok during a thanksgiving prayer service.
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua also seconded the head of state by cautioning MPs who are against the contentious Finance Bill, 2023, that they should not expect to receive any financial aid for development projects such as road building in their constituencies.
He emphasized that the government heavily relies on the Bill to generate revenue and therefore, it is crucial for legislators to fully support it if they expect to secure funds for development projects.
