“Mnataka kutax hii magari na hamkununulia mtu” – Angry Mutahi Kahiga tells Ruto

Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga has joined a group of Kenyans in opposing the Finance Bill 2024, which proposes a series of taxes to fund President Ruto’s 2024/2025 budget.

“Hawa watu wasiwadanganye. Hiyo Finance Bill mnasema mtaongeza tax, hawa watu mnaona hapa (cheers among the congregation)… Finance Bill chini (Let no one lie to you.

This Finance Bill in which you are proposing more taxes is not approved by these people you are seeing. This Finance Bill should be shut down),” he said in his address at AIPCA Church, Nyeri Town.

He went on to slam the government over a proposal to impose tax on vehicles saying the move is unacceptable.

“Sasa mnataka kutax hii magari na hamkununulia mtu na sasa mnataka kuchukua pesa. Alafu mnatuambia tunyamaze. (Now you want to tax these vehicles that you did not help Kenyans buy and you want us to keep quiet). We will speak,” he said.

Kahiga challenged the MPs to reject the bill saying that is what Kenyans want.

He said the Kenya Kwanza government should shun over-ambitious projects and focus on delivering what they can.

“We have problems. The citizens are crying that the taxes are too much. If they are not telling you that then I dont know. Tell the president things are not right,” Kahiga said in a message aimed at Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen who was present at the church service.
