Babu owino’s Tough letter to Uhuru that has gone viral

Babu puts Uhuru on notice

On his Facebook account, the MP urged the president to ascent to the amended finance bill 2018 on the 16 percent Value Added Tax terming it as illegal.

“we have seen the Treasury Secretary Henry Rotich purport to implement an illegal tax on the people of Kenya no doubt to finance our growing debt obligation.

“I do not hesitate to call the tax illegal because parliament voted to amend the finance bill and suspend the implementation of the proposed 16 percent VAT on fuel,” part of the statement read.

The letter comes after a deep outcry by middle class Kenyans who have since accused the government for continuing to make life difficult.

According to Owino in his letter, the president’s recent witnessed trips to the U.S and  currently in China, purges the country into huge debts.

“It was public that your government is borrowing the sum equivalent of Ksh450 billion for the construction of a 6 lane highway from Mombasa to Nairobi. I further note that in your visit to china, your government has taken a further Ksh 380 billion in debt for the construction of phase 2A of Standard Gauge Railway from Naivasha to Kisumu.

“I make this request as a father to a fellow father for the sake of our children and children’s children let us find innovative ways to reduce public expenditure and wastage instead of raiding pockets of common wananchi” Owino stated.
