Kitui Central MP Dr. Makali Mulu lectured Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua over ‘shares’ remarks to his face.
Mulu said that even if according to Gachagua the Kambas don’t have shares in the government they are still taxpayers and any decision made affects them too.
He noted that every Kenyan deserves development despite their political alignment because they pay taxes to the government.
“We may not have political shares but if you look at the register you will find Kambas, they pay taxes, at the same time there is no government money, it all belongs to taxpayers,” said the MP.
The legislator asked the DP to talk to President William Ruto and relook at the 16 percent VAT on fuel proposal by finding an alternative for it will burden Kenyans.
The lawmaker also defended the Azimio demos stating that it was not contrary to the constitution. Mulu asked for leaders and Kenyans to give the task force having talks ample time to do their job.
He however noted that if nothing reasonable comes from the talks then Kenyans will be back on the streets.
Mulu is the only Wiper MP from Kitui who attended a fundraising ceremony at St. Charles Lwanga High School in Kitui where Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua was the Chief Guest.
Other leaders present include Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, and Tourism Cabinet Secretary Penina Malonza among others.
In response, Rigathi defended taxation saying the money was required for development. On the Finance bill, he told off Azimio that they have no numbers to block its passing. Read more –
