Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdulahi has called out President William Ruto’s administration for overtaxing Kenyans while doing too little to prevent looting of public funds.

Ahmednasir who was commenting on the new proposed taxes in the Financial Bill 2024, warned of hostility from the citizens who’re getting overburdened by the increasing taxes.

He said Ruto risks losing a big chunk of the hustlers support who formed his campaigns base.

“Over taxation, especially of goods and services used by mama Mboga and Wanjiku, make governments very unpopular and delegitimised when it doesn’t provide corresponding services or when the taxes are stollen by corrupt civil servants. President William Ruto’s government is going that route full speed.” Ahmednasir said in a statement posted on Social Media.

While underscoring the importance of raising taxes for repaying country’s debts that he blames on reckless borrowing by President Uhuru’s administration, Ahmednasir says bulk of the taxes are being looted by state officials who keep getting away with it and in line nesting the logic of raising taxes.

“Our government raises taxes every year and we obviously don’t get value of money. We don’t have good roads, health services are in shambles, the education system is almost non-existent (very soon, more children will do British curriculum than Kenyan), judges make more than than lawyers, farmers are suffering because of fake fertilisers and Hon Mithika Linturi refuses to take responsibility, theft of public money is normal, Governors and county officials are stealing like crazy etc,” he noted.

Going for Ruto’s neck, the lawyerthe lawyer now wonders why Kenyans should be burdened with taxes at the expense of government officials who loot with impunity.

“So surely, why do we pay taxes? For CSs, judges, and governors to steal it? Doesn’t make sense for me. President Ruto needs to engage Kenyans on these taxes and why it is stolen UNDER HIS WATCH. Mr. President, we will pay taxes but give us value for our money and stop your Waziris, judges, and governors stealing Wanjiku’s taxes.” He added.
