William Ruto speaking at Friends Church Kivaywa in Lugari Constituency, has critiqued the government for its borrowing heavily to fund its projects, yet Kenyans can’t contribute the same revenue.
He added that the extravagant borrowing of the government has complicated the Kenyans life, making life more difficult.
According to the deputy president, when everyone is empowered, citizens will be able to pay taxes, and the government will have enough income and not resort to lenders like China.
His remarks comes days after the president dared him to resign, than to be critiquing the same government he claims to be part of. As of January 2021, the Kenyan debt stands at Ksh 7 trillion and this is expected to increase. This is according to the treasury since it is planning to borrow to facilitate 2021/2022 budget.
