Minimum tax was brought about by cabinet secritary in the ministry of finance honourable Ukur Yatani and supported by national assembly finance committee chaired by honourable Gladys Wanga.

"Those who are able to pay taxes from their profits will not have their capital affected while those genuinely in losses will be sacrificed at the altar of those concealing their profits. That is not how to enact a fiscal legislation" justice Odunga added.
