• The Head of State further vowed to be personally involved in ensuring that Kenyans get their taxes’ worth of public services in full.
President William Ruto on Friday assured Kenyans that he will fully be responsible to ensure that Kenyans get adequate services for the tax they pay.
He said that looking at the taxes Kenyans pay, they deserve quality services delivered to them and he will ensure that public funds are used for the intended purpose.
"My office shall be responsible for ensuring effectiveness, efficiency, transparency, and accountability in the use of public funds," Ruto said.
The Head of State who was at the KRA headquarters in Nairobi, further vowed to be personally involved in ensuring that Kenyans get their taxes’ worth of public services in full.
" On this matter, I would like to let my actions speak for me," Ruto said.
The President challenged his government to do much more to build public confidence that it can and will manage public resources honestly, efficiently, transparently, and be accountable.
Ruto also said he will walk the talk of weeding out corrupt officials in his government.
"The Constitution mandates it, the law requires it and basic decency demands it. I do not wish to dwell at length on this matter because historically, so much has been said yet so little has been done in slaying the dragon of corruption in government."
