•The government has faced criticism from the opposition as well as the public over the high cost of living.
•Raila said Kenyans cannot be taxed to the bone just because of Kenya Kwanza’s internal weaknesses.
Former member of parliament Kabando Wa Kabando has urged President William Ruto to listen to Kenyans on why they are against the introduction of new taxes.
Speaking on Friday through a statement shared on his social handles, he claimed having the MPs pass the Finance Bill, will not have represented Kenyans' view on the document.
"A people united cannot be defeated, can't pay won't pay. You can't and won't win. MPs will vote your (Ruto) way, but the public is saying that is NOT their way. On tax, either backtrack or you face early exit," Kabando added.
The legislator noted that President Ruto will shortly realise that the voice of the people is the voice of God.
"On day 255, only a few hypnotised sycophants are still saying that Ruto should be given more time after failing to do what he loudly promised in his first 100 days," he added.
The government has faced criticism from the opposition as well as the public over the high cost of living.
This week, the government's move to issue a clarification on the controversial affordable housing project, to which it will be mandatory for salaried citizens to contribute, has received a backlash from some Kenyans who want the agenda dropped.
Opposition chief Raila Odinga has on various occasions told President Ruto that the cost of living needed to be relooked at because, at the moment, people are suffering.
He said Kenyans cannot be taxed to the bone just because of Kenya Kwanza’s internal weaknesses.
In addition, Raila has asked President Ruto to institute far-reaching reforms in his administration to tackle the high cost of living.
