Azimio leader Raila Odinga has opposed the regime’s plan to inflict extra taxes on Kenyans as means of raising revenue for its outlandish promises.
”We are particularly concerned about the regime’s plan to inflict more tax burdens on Kenyans and other pronouncements and promises made in recent days.
Kenyans cannot afford and should not be asked to pay extra taxes for the UDA regime to realise the outlandish and unrealistic promises it is pursuing,” Mr. Odinga said in Nairobi, adding that deducting more money from workers won’t solve any problem.
Mr. Odinga who was accompanied at the media briefing by Martha Karua and Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka also noted the ongoing investigations into extrajudicial killings in the country have turned into a witch-hunt by President William Ruto against former DCI boss George Kinoti and some police officers.
”William Ruto’s grudge against Kinoti and the DCI started way back before the elections. Ruto appears to believe that the coming of the UDA regime is a perfect mandate for him to punish officers he had a grudge against. We are here to say no,” he noted
Mr. Odinga has also asked the government to invite foreign detectives such as Scotland Yard to probe unresolved murders of prominent Kenyans including Chris Musando and Jacob Juma.
