Makueni Senator Daniel Maanzo has cautioned the Kenya Kwanza government against raising the cost of living which is already high.
The Senator said that the cost of living was high and Kenyans should not be subjected to more hardships by the Kenya Kwanza government. He told President Ruto and his Deputy Rigathi Gachagua that if they won’t listen to the Kenyans their leadership will come to an end like the Biblical ‘Mene Mene Tekel’ leadership of King Belshazzar.
“The government should lower the cost of living instead of making Kenyans living near the Kenya-Tanzania border go to Tanzania since the fuel is cheap there. The taxes are high here in Kenya, in Uganda and Tanzania the fuel prices are low, why is this government of William Ruto victimizing Kenyans?,” Maanzo asked.
He called upon President Ruto to listen to Kenyans since he said he was a Christian because they are suffering yet he is turning deaf ears to them.
“Your Christianity is your actions, it is talking about what you do, listening to Kenyans, and reducing the cost of living. If you continue pressurizing the Kenyans to pay more taxes and the money is being eaten by your people, there will be no new people to start businesses due to the high taxes imposed,” Maanzo stated.
The vocal senator added that Kenyans will soon get tired of the Kenya Kwanza government if the government won’t listen to the people. He said that if the high cost of living then that would be the end of President Ruto’s leadership.
“The same people who supported you will get angry with you and when you lose people’s favor, you will also lose God’s favor. That’s why the Kingdom of Babylon was written on the wall ‘Mene Mene Tekel’ its the same way the Leadership of Rigathi and Ruto is written ‘Mene Mene Tekel’ and it will be taken from them,” he added.
The Makueni Senator pointed out that the case against the 2023 Finance Bill is still active in court and they are hopeful that justice will be delivered on their side and side of Kenyans who said the Finance Bill is burdening them. Senator Maanzo is Petitioner No.7 in the Finance Bill case representing the Eastern Region with Omtata at the forefront and Otiende Omollo representing the Nyanza region.
