Video: Raila Refers To The Tax On Beer As The Mother Of all Taxes

Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Amollo Odinga while speaking to residents of Likoni Sub County, Mombasa County, said taxes in the country are high starting from salt, sugar, flour, coca cola, cigarettes and to cap it all beer is the most taxed commodity.

Raila gave a chronology of how County governments came to be. He said that they agitated for monies to trickle down to the people through devolution which most of the people opposed.

He said that before devolution, government technocrats used to sit in high offices in capital city Nairobi and decide what projects the people deserved but since devolution, local residents are at liberty to chose what kind of projects meets their needs.

He emphasized on the need to pass the building bridges initiative constitutional amendment Bill 2020 during the referendum because it aims at taking more money to the counties hence more development.
