Raila encounters angry mob in Kisumu
He was forced to defend himself
The angry mob that waited to see Raila as he passed through Kondele carried labelled placards as they chanted the word "fuel"
“I know the issue of the VAT on fuel is the biggest issue affecting Kenyans now,” he said.
He further said that Kenyatta explained to him how the National Budget had deficits that needed to be filled and a lot of debts that needed to be re-paid, and that the situation was growing into a huge crisis.
“The budget deficit meant that if the VAT was to be reduced to zero, it was going to hurt our country,” said Raila.
The Opposition leader also stated that they supported the tax with conditions which included the president streamlining the Government to ensure public money is spent responsibly.
“We have given Uhuru one year and some of the things that must be addressed is corruption,” said the former Prime Minister.
