Azimio MPs will vote against the affordable housing bill in Parliament, Minority Whip Mark Mwenje said yesterday.
The Deputy Minority Whip said they have resolved to shoot down the bill, which, according to the Embakasi West MP, is not only oppressive but a burden to already over-taxed citizens.
Speaking in Limuru, Mwenje who was accompanied by former MPs and Jubilee Party officials, told President William Ruto to stop force his affordable housing agenda on Kenyans.
“We will not rest until this oppressive proposed law is defeated. The courts have pronounced themselves on this. We as the opposition will play our part of oversighting the government by opposing the taxes imposed by the Kenya Kwanza regime,” Mwenje said.
“This agenda by Ruto is meant to help rich, there is no way a mama mboga can afford to pay for the said houses, it will flop,” Mwenje told a congregation at MJCC church in Limuru.
