KOT Call On Uhuru To Do Something About 16% Fuel Increment

Many were caught off-guard as this came just days after Members of parliament sought to delay the proposed 16% VAT on fuel. Through an amendment filed by Minority whip Janet Mohammed through the Finance Bill 2018, the MP’s had sought to suspend the implementation of the new tax by two years.
