THE QUESTION OF TAX, THE ULTIMATE DECISION IS MINE: A VOTER
THE TAX MANS NOOSE HANGS LARGE
In his tenure as the house speaker, Kenneth Otiato Marende has taken some outstanding decisions in the defense of both the law and public interest. As such, it is hard to imagine how such a volatile house could have been led without his acuity and grasp of law.
However, as linen dotted by mad, Marende’s sufficiently philanthropic assertion stands out as the darkest spot when he shelved public interest for personal comfort. His children have decried with unknown venom a suggestion by the commissioner of tax to have them respect the law and fulfill a Citizens duty of paying tax.
With the Executive having apparently betrayed a silent memorandum to ensure our money conscious legislators do not pay tax, the honorable members are plotting revenge and top on the agenda is to scuttle the implementation process by voting down crucial bills.
Well, they have the constitutional mandate of legitimizing a piece into legislation in this country, but I am sufficiently sure that the sovereign power lies with the masses.
Perhaps we could ask ourselves a few questions, did they back the content of the constitution or they disguised their true wishes not to offend the principals. Well either way, good for us, we have a new constitution. Whether Mbadi genuinely believed in it, or they had some unknown desires that were massaged to gain their support, the republic is in a new dispensation. A dispensation where the law is unaware of status or secrete MOUS. Where the will of the people is supreme, and the people are the sovereign.
HON. JOHN MBADI- HAS VOWED NOT TO PAY TAX
Whether they were promised by the Head of State, or took refuge in The Attorney General’s letters, the constitution I ratified, by the sanctity of my vote requires everyone to pay tax. I intend to see that this is done.
Probably they fail to understand a few basics of instances when the people are sovereign. If they choose to scuttle implementation bills, I could petition the Chief Justice to advice the president to dissolve the parliament. I need not que at his Mlimani office, I will just post on his face book wall and home goes Mbadi.
Yet still, if that parliament is dissolved, there shall be o tax amnesty, as such, the few assets he has amassed would be attached to this sacred debt. Can someone tell the Mheshimiwa that you can run, but you cannot hide.
The constitution is a guarded asset of Kenya. We have unimaginable hopes pegged on this constitution, come on, we cannot sacrifice a Republic for Mbadi’s or Kapondi’s convenience. NEVER BWANA MKUBWA!!!
Well, worse still, they can’t vote to increase their salaries, we had seen how generous they were with themselves and this responsibility now lies with The Salaries and Remuneration Commission.
The word of Raila, or Kibaki or Wako cannot dilute the sanctity of my choice that all Kenyans ought to pay tax.
If someone wants the allowances to the spouses of the prime minister and Vice president scrapped, well, I am glad; it is an added burden to I, the faithful tax payer.
I wait with a daring smile for anyone to scuttle the constitution because of a debt the accrued. Well, Hosni a strong man could not withstand the people’s decision, I wonder whether Mbadi can.
As for those who paid, well done, but it was not a favor, it was an obligation, but still they deserve accolades since they heeded a call.
THE PRIME MINISTER- Raila Odinga paying his Dues
I should with great honor pay my respect to Peter Kenneth, he saw that the moment had passed for legislators to give themselves unnecessary privileges and has since paid his tax faithfully. Kudos Peter, you are a worth leader.
We now have the message, translating into the new dispensation is not easy for these folks who have been deities. Painfully, the lordship ambit of the parliament was substantially slashed by my supreme will and as such, this should be informed to the legislators, albeit through a civic education program.
