Mathira Member of Parliament Hon Rigathi Gachagua has been trending on social media after a dialogue in one of the media houses on twenty fourth may 2022.
Honorable Gachagua was explaining how they are determined to help the less advantaged or the Mama mboga and boda boda guys this coalition has been inspiring.
It's during the dialogue when he mentioned that big companies such as Safaricom and Kenya Airways are very large institutions but what they give as tax may not be equivalent to what is expected. According to his point of view, such firms should be sold and the money lended to small businesses whose tax may exceed the tax from the large firms by thirty percent.
The small businesses are recorded to collect an amount to thirty percent of the total tax. This drives him to the point that is the small businesses are further supported, the tax would add up to a higher level and lead to the growth of the economy.
His statement has created the headline of many stories in the social media some claiming that his reasoning of killing a business to open up other businesses is the least people could think of in the target to support the economy.
