All Kenyans pay taxes!:Raila Accuses Ruto of Employing people from only two communities mostly Kalenjins

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga has accused President William Ruto of furthering tribalism in the country.

“Since he got into office, he’s been employing people. But he’s employing people from two communities alone. If it is not from Mt Kenya, then it’s mostly the Rift Valley region. If you look at the gazette notice, you’ll see that is what is happening. We are saying all Kenyans are paying their taxes.” Raila said.

Raila stated that it is sad that all Kenyans pay taxes, but when it comes to opportunities, some communities are discriminated against.

“This is discrimination. Meaning some people are not Kenyan, yet they are taxed daily. When it comes to being employed, they’re discriminated against. That is why we’re saying this is not the Kenya we wanted. This Kenya has discrimination where the people don’t have a voice,” he added.

Meanwhile,The government has formulated a strategy it believes will help deal with cattle rustling and banditry in the North Rift region.

This follows the deployment of the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops to the volatile region.

However, the infiltration of small arms into parts of the North Rift has been identified as one of the major challenges fueling banditry.

Trans Nzoia governor George Natembeya observed that until the government disarms the bandits, they will continue terrorising the residents.
