Human Right Activists in Uasin Gishu have castigated legislators politicizing the Finance Bill, 2023.


According to Kipkorir Ng’etich of the Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (CHRD ) politicians should educate the citizenry regarding important clauses in the Finance Bill that will have a far reaching impact in their lives once it’s passed by parliament.


“We want to call upon the political class to stop politicizing the Finance Bill 2023 but rather educate Kenyans to understand the need and the importance of the bill,” Noted Ng’etich


Ng’etich further insisted that the government has a constitutional mandate to collect taxes  in order to stimulate development projects in the country.


“Kenyans need to be sensitized on the  need for the country to depend on itself  in realizing  it’s development plans  rather than depending on loans ,” He noted


Ng’etich has expressed optimism that the country is on the right track to achieve its development goals and only if the taxes collected will be handled in the right way.


“It is actually true that it might be painful to some extent but at the end of the day there will be good results if the money collected will be managed well,” Kipkorir added.


Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga has been on the forefront to reject the bill saying that Kenyans will be overburdened if the bill is passed and assented into law.


The opposition leader recently gave ten demands to President Ruto citing that if the demands are not met they will lead Kenyans back to mass demonstrations.
