We need to have this conversation because this is the daylife will change forever starting today.
MP’s are expected to vote on President Uhuru’s recommendation slashing the 16 per cent by half.
There is no one who hasn’t been touched by the cost of living. Maina Kageni in his morning conversation asked listeners to talk to their MP about this emotive issue.
Mwalimu Kingangi dug in saying,
‘Ata nywelel za india zimepanda na hii kitu ikianza kesho, wacha kulia hakuna pesa, if you earn more money, the lesser you have.’
I want to know whats going through your mind, coz you’ve got to understand one thing, life will change starting today.
Do you understand the magnitude of this issue? Listen to the discussion on the audio below:
Its really disturbing since we do dont have an opposition to agree or disagree, the goverment is cooking something which we are yet to see. My take VAT on petroleum products should be 0

This people around him are the problem do you want to tell me they hadn't seen this since they got to the office..they would have had the whole 16% divided and fixed to other places..I think we went for hungry leaders they were too busy filling their pockets to have seen this

Its true the country can save billions if those positions are scrapped but the new constitution should not be blamed for tough economic times.

Why do we have 4 to 5 principal secretaries to already loaded cabinet secretaries, being paid almost 600k per month, that's a lot of money in one financial year than can help reduce the budget deficit
