    Raila Rejects Ruto’s NSSF Tax Plan

    Published on

    In response to President William Ruto’s proposal to raise tax collection and individual contributions to Kenya’s National Social Security Fund, Azimio leader Raila Odinga has voiced his opposition.

    He argued that the economy shouldn’t be used as an excuse to raise taxes because taxpayers have already been hit hard by rising prices for food, energy, and other necessities. Raila claims that Kenya’s economy was turned around under the late President Mwai Kibaki’s leadership without a rise in tax rates.

    “We are worried about UDA’s plan to increase tax burdens on Kenyans, as well as other recent announcements and pledges that are unachievable and for which Kenyans should not be expected to pay additional taxes in order for the UDA regime to accomplish their absurd and unattainable goals.” he stated.

    Following the post-election violence of 2008, Raila said, the Grand Coalition government boosted economic growth without increasing taxes.
