Former Health Cabinet Secretary (CS) Mutahi Kagwe resurfaces with a rare political comeback with a message to President William Ruto.

Speaking on Sunday, March 10, Kagwe castigated the Kenya Kwanza administration over the current tax regime. 

The former Health CS in Uhuru administration noted that at the moment Kenyans were feeling the heat of taxation. 

Kagwe indicated that most Kenyans lacked proper sources of income and new tax measures were making their lives hard.

He thus appealed to President William Ruto to create an environment that would allow more sustain their livelihoods.

“They are saying that tax people before they earn the money. That is why the purpose of our education must be now be moved from hustlers and hecklers to a wealthy nation,” Kagwe stated.

Kagwe was accompanied by former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya who also lamented over plans to tax farmers.

Munya faulted the move insisting that the government could have first formulated policies to ensure farmers sell their produce at a profit before hitting them with new taxes.

“We are being told to pay taxes, we will pay yes. But how can you tell a person to pay taxes yet he is not even earning any profit? Do you want them to pay taxes with their capital?” Munya wondered.

“Telling people to pay 30 percent of their earnings as tax is simply telling them to shut down their operations,” Munya indicated.
