- Odege and Masara claimed Kenyans deserve to be taxed heavily for not heeding anti-Jubilee calls in 2017 General Election

- Odege said it is laughable some are blaming Opposition MPs yet they rejected NASA in 2017

- They said taxpayers must live with the reality of huge debt owed to China

Two ODM MPs from Nyanza have claimed Kenyans deserve to be taxed heavily for voting in the wrong person President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2017 General Election.

Nyatike MP Tom Odege and his Suna West counterpart Peter Masara jeered at Kenyans who are protesting over the passing and assenting into law new Finance Bill 2018 which signals high cost of living.

Odege said it was laughable the same voters whom NASA asked to reject Jubilee government at the ballot are now blaming lawmakers including those from the Opposition coalition.

Masara shared the same sentiments, saying no matter the high cost of living, Kenyans must be ready to pay huge debt borrowed from China, only then shall they be at peace from the bondage of heavy taxation.

The two were speaking in Migori county on Saturday, September 22.

According to the new taxation law, Kenyans will pay KSh 18 more for a litre of kerosene while mobile money transfer tax increased from 10 % to 20% more per transaction.

Those using their phones to access the internet will be charged 15 % excise duty on airtime and data, currently standing at 10%.

There are budget cuts on other government projects such as the stipends for the elderly, free maternity, free secondary education, roads and Equalisation and Affirmative Action funds.
