Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna on Kenya Kwanza tax system

The statements made by the Kenya Kwanza DP, Rigathi Gachagua, that the Kenya Kwanza administration would exclusively benefit individuals that voted for them have been responded to by the Senator from Nairobi, Edwin Sifuna.

Sifuna took to Twitter on February 20 to criticize Gachagua, pointing out that every citizen of Kenya is required to pay taxes to the government.

The secretary general of the ODM said that Azimio should set up its own tax collection system so that its members wouldn't have to pay taxes to the Kenya Kwanza government.

"The K in KRA is supposed to stand for Kenya Kwanza, at least according to Gachagua." We need our very own revenue authority to channel our taxes, and that authority should be called the People's Revenue Authority.


"At that point, PRA is in a position to meet with KRA to explore the possibility of reimbursing the taxes that all Azimio supporters have already paid to the fake KK government," Sifuna said.

On Sunday, DP Gachagua declared that individuals who backed Kenya Kwanza had a controlling interest in the government and should, as a result, be the primary benefactors before those who endorsed Azimio.

This government is similar to a firm that is backed by stock. There are people who have a small number of shares and others who have a large number of shares. According to Gachagua, because of this, "those who fought for us and backed us must reap the rewards first."

Gladys Boss Shollei, who is the Deputy Speaker of the National Parliament, has defended the Deputy President by saying that his comments have been taken completely out of context.
