See how ROBERT ALAI embarrassed UHURU’s government over Housing Levy Fund – This man has a point

Thursday April 18, 2019-Celebrated Social media crusader, Robert Alai, has criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government over introduction of 1.5 per cent levy that was to be deducted from workers' monthly pay to finance a new low-cost housing fund.

The deduction is contained in the Finance Act, 2018 which was set to take effect on January 1, 2019 despite opposition from unions and employers.

The act requires deduction of 1.5 per cent from an employee’s earnings, with the employer matching that amount.

Now commenting on the issue, Alai lambasted Jubilee government saying it yet to build houses for police officers and soldiers yet it is claiming it can build low cost houses for 50 million Kenyans.

Government hasn’t been able to build even enough houses for police and soldiers and here we are letting the same incompetent bunch claim that they can build houses for 50 million of us? We are not fools!”Alai wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, High Court on Wednesday suspended the charge following an application filed by by the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) which is opposed to the levy on grounds that no public participation has taken place and that transparency in its implementation is not guaranteed.
