Here is the tough question MOSES KURIA asked UHURU and ROTICH who pretend to know how to run a country – They should go back to school!!


Friday June 14, 2019 - Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, has continued to show his unmatched financial skills after he poked holes on the Sh 3.1 trillion budget read by Treasury Cabinet Secretary, Henry Rotich, yesterday.

Kuria, who had a decorated banking career before he joined politics, said it is foolish for Rotich to tax over 1 million boda boda operators in the country.

“Today it’s okay to say that you are taxing someone or you are putting a burden on someone as much as you want to.”

“But there is something called ‘can’t pay, won’t pay’.”

“Among our 1 million boda-boda riders, I think only 200,000 or 300,000 have the third party insurance and the rest cannot afford," Kuria said on Thursday.

The outspoken lawmaker also argued that it is senseless for 49 million Kenyans to carry the budget weight of the employed one million Kenyans who take half of the budget.

“In a budget of Sh. 3 trillion, half of it goes to people who are employed by the government (recurrent expenditure) – salary, mandazi, travel and flowers. In a country of Sh50 million people, civil servants are not more than 1 million.”

“We have to ask ourselves, for how long are 49 million people going to carry the burden of 1 million people.” Kuria asked.

More than Sh 1.5 trillion of the Sh 3.1 trillion budget will go to recurrent expenditure.
