Hon. Aden Duale urges M.Ps to pass the VAT bill
National Assembly Majority Leader Hon. Aden Duale has appealed to MPs to pass the President’s proposal on the Value Added Tax. The Garissa Township legislator is confident that the MPs will pass the bill regardless of the public outcry.
Speaking to Journalists he insisted that the Government has no other way of raising revenue apart from tax. “The Governemen has projects to implement and that requires money,” said Hon. Duale.
The MPs will tomorrow debate and vote on the 8% VAT. A section of MPs have vowed to reject the proposal once it is brought to the floor of the house.
