ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi has once again criticized Deputy President William Ruto’s bottom up economic model.
Mudavadi was speaking during a church service at ACK Emmanuel Riruta Church in Kwangware, Nairobi on Sunday where he characterized the economic model as a confusion to Kenyans.
“Let us not confuse Kenyans by talking about the models. What we need is to be practical about our public debt, corruption and agree if taxation is becoming a problem. People are feeling the weight of taxation that is now becoming punitive,” ANC leader stated.
He maintained that economic models can only be talked about once the corruption, high taxation and public debt is settled.
“Once you have diagnosed, provide target corrective measures and policy decisions that can address that situation but don’t talk about models, we are not in an economic class,” Mudavadi said.
Speaking about political formation, Musalia said that they cannot enter into a new coalition.
“We cannot enter into a new coalition until we have dealt with the previous once. Can we go step by step?” he posed.
Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula who accompanied ANC boss warned MPs against using the pandemic as a weapon to postponed the next year’s general elections.
“No one has the authority to postponed elections. Tanzania, Uganda and the US have held elections under the weight of Covid-19. We must learn to live even under stress,” Wetangula said.
He said that nobody will be allowed to postponed elections since Kenya is having a five-year term.
“We have a five-year term. We will not allow anyone to try to postponed the election,” He added.
