The residents of Kakamega county are really angry after the county government has proposed new taxes on clinical male circumcision in hospitals and post - mortem on dead animals including cats, dogs and chicken which is mandatory after the recent change in county laws.
"We condemn the move by our MCAs to add such punitive laws to our already overtaxed people in the name of circumcision and post mortem fees ."
" We are in a pandemic and instead of the government it is overburdening us with more taxes." noted one Mr Wekesa.
The residents will therefore be required to pay Ksh600 to the livestock department to conduct the post mortem.
One Mr Wambani also joined the other residents to complain of the extra 100 added for the patients who are on oxygen as the carter for the oxygen they are operating on.
Private schools were also not spared as they have to part with a 300 per cent increase on the current 25 00 they are required to pay in order to operate in the county.
