Kenyans today took to social media to Lament over the statements from the government spokesperson Cyrus Oleguna, after He claimed that Kenyans are just crying over paying of high taxes instead of being silent and let the government operate its way.
In a statement while addressing the nation on the state of affairs in the government, Oleguna said that nobody will come from outside this Nation and support our government, and the responsibility remains in the hands of all Kenyans, even as the nation is experiencing alot of challenges.
While insisting on the same, He added that Countries abroad in other Continents actually pay heavy taxes way much from what we are paying as a Country but they never complain.
"If we keep complaining, who will fund the government? let's not Lament always our Nation gets it's money from taxes that we pay. But all in all, if you take a look at other Countries for example those in Europe, they pay alot of taxes compared to what we have here."Oleguna said.
The government spokesperson was responding to the current situation in the Nation where angry Kenyans have shown their displasure towards the Hike in the price fuels in the Country, that has left alot of motorists paying more for the fuel, hence increasing the cost of transportation.
Kenyans also said that now that Raila Odinga is working with Uhuru Kenyatta, there is no stable opposition that would address such issues.
