Even though the Azimio demonstrations are no longer in place, it appears as if Azimio leaders might consider them and even call for them once more. This is due to the recent happenings in the country especially about taxes.
In a recent post by Kileleshwa MCA Robert Alai on Twitter, he has gone ahead to urge Raila to call for demonstrations in the country. He has alleged that Kenyans should not be forced to pay a 3% tax to the government since that is considered corruption.
Even though the government is planning to introduce a 3% levy on all civil servants for the affordable housing project. Numerous Kenyans seem to oppose the proposed deduction. This is because some Kenyans do not see the benefit of affordable housing as they already have homes and might not benefit in any way from the project.
Apart from that, the 3% deduction might leave some. kenyans broke since they do not earn much and have a lot of deductions that take the better part of their payslips.
