Tuesday September, 25, 2018 - Deputy President William Ruto has defended the tax increase saying it is for the good of the country.

Speaking in Kapsabet Showground during the launch of Nandi County’s Big Four agenda, Ruto said the country’s domestic and external debts are within the Government’s ability to service and a “crisis should not be created out of it”.

“The entire country’s development programmes are being funded by either local taxes or borrowed money and it’s like that across developing nations,” Ruto said.

He said the Government is neither blind nor is it being driven by selfish interests in the “slight increase in tax”.

Ruto said the tax will help the country fulfill its needs and wants.

The DP said all Governments use taxes to service debt obligations as it seeks others for developments projects.

“The magical developments you’re witnessing in our Counties across the nation are the same resources flowing from the national Government,” he said.

The DP differed with Emgwen MP, Alex Kosgey, who had expressed fears that the future of the country is bleak if the Government does not check its borrowing.
