Kenya’s President, William Ruto, has requested that the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) cease its practice of threatening and harassing taxpayers.
He argued for a more personable method of tax collection.
Ruto said KRA should consult and interact with residents instead of bullying them.
President Ruto has said that all citizens must pay their fair share of taxes.
According to the Head of State, taxes should be levied not only on income and consumption but also on wealth.
The tax collectors, according to Gachagua, should not criminalize tax payments but instead do their responsibilities with respect.
As part of his attempts to root out fraudulent practices, Governor Sakaja has announced that all county payments have been digitized.
