    No country has taxed its people to prosperity, says Richard Onyonka

    Kisii Senator Richard Onyonka has said they stand for the fact that no country has taxed its people to prosperity.

    Speaking on Citizen TV, Onyonka said according to Kenya’s history, the country’s problems started after former President Mwai Kibaki (late) left office.

    “After Kibaki left office Kenya’s debt was around Sh1.6-Sh1.9 trillion by then,” he said.

    Onyonka said that the preceding government started borrowing more money accelerating the debt greatly.

    He said it is due to Kenya’s excessive borrowing that the government wants to tax Kenyans to get out of debt.

    “As a country, we have excessively borrowed and now we have a new government coming in and saying that the only way to get ourselves out of debt is to tax you as much as we can,” Onyonka said.

    “Opposition stands for the fact that no country has taxed its people to prosperity,” he said.

    Onyonka said the opposition has nothing against the president’s success.

    “We have no problem with him succeeding,” he said

    “But democracy requires the president to come out and say what it is he is trying to do.”

    He said Kenyans need to know the government’s strategy.

    “We need the government to be clear to the Kenyan people,” he said.

    “We need to know what the problem is and whether the government will continue to tax and spend.”

    He said the opposition is not bitter or against the current government because of what the president wants to do, and that what they want is prudence.

    “We want to know how the money is going to be spent to fix the country’s problems and assurance that the interventions government is suggesting are legitimate, practical, and short term,” he said.
