Hopes over the possible reduction of taxes on various basic commodities in Kenya like fuel which has made the cost of living to be very high besides the heavy blow by Covid-19 Pandemic now seems to be fading away after the painful remarks by Senator Orengo.
While addressing the Senate this evening on behalf of other senators who are heard cheering him up, the vocal ODM Senator has admitted that both the two legislative houses, Senate and Parliament have become toothless and very weak for the government led by Uhuru Kenyatta.
This means that the president has overpowered them and that's why he together with his closest team in government has been making and introducing various taxes without the input of the legislatures.
From the video shared through the link above, you can hear other senators within the chamber lauding him for speaking the truth on what they do feel without any regard for differences in political parties.
According to the Senator for Siaya County, the current Parliament will go down in Kenyan history as the weakest Parliament that has ever exist in the country.
His remarks come with regards to the current war and debate on the recently increased fuel prices which has got Kenyans wild at the entire government including the Senate and National Assembly.
And since they are the only people Kenyans trust with the power to fight for them these tough wars on tax increments, who else will come to their rescue after this painful admission? Let's discuss that through the comments section as you share with us your views on this.
