Uhuru makes new promise

President Kenyatta quickly signs fuel VAT proposal into law

"I have signed into law the Finance Bill 2018. I give my commitment that I will ensure proper utilisation of public resources for a better Kenya. I will not relent on the war against Corruption,"

The President had initially rejected to approve the bill after MPs sought to postpone VAT on fuel products for two years.

The head of state sent the bill back to the House with various proposals that introduced a variety of taxes ranging from 8 percent VAT to increased exercise duty on imported motor vehicles - among others.
