Treasury is proposing to raise Value Added Tax (TAX) from 16% to 18 per cent.

Below are some of the reactions shared on social media.

Daniel Mbugua: Wale wako Nairobi sijui tupange tukutane archive tupige nduru (those in Nairobi we should gather and let out a loud scream)

Marvin: We should come up with qualifications not everyone should be allowed to vote
Mr. Cliff: Yani the price of Kerosene has gone up by Kes 33.13 to Kes 202.61/litre! Where are we heading as a country?

The Government Critic : 18% VAT on fuel was proposed just two days ago and today it has been implemented by EPRA. Who’s crying now? Uhuru Kenyatta? Welcome to the new Republic of Taxmenistan.
