Starting a business in Kenya no longer makes sense, unless you can beat KRA and the many "Authorities" requirements and costly licenses they bark, i see a bleak future in entrepreneurship. Graduates are supposed to create employment, not be employed, but if all attempts is in arresting their brains we simply cement OUR "third world" status.

Growth in Kenya will remain shunted in favor of the already established names. Those roads being made will be useless for spurring growth if they transit nothing. In fact, in future i foresee the coming generation running away from Nairobi and start up in some remote places where this nonsense is less common. Most guys are starting to realize this and are setting up hustles elsewhere.

KRA should simply encourage ample taxation, widen the tax bracket and encourage entrepreneurs to act on their dreams. This dreams are Kenyas only hope to industrialisation, not continuously making roads. Btw, that big budget i see no use for it other than increasing our debt ceiling.
Don't worry. We won't be around in 2099. Life is short and better lived when you stop worrying about its complexities!

Jaindi Kisero already told us about a very very tough year 2019 will be. Tutakula rice (cheap and low quality imported Chinese rice) and beans like poor people hadi mwaka iishe. 130kg of stored fat will turn to 80 kg of skin and bones

I want people in the informal sector taxed kabisa

They are the ones who fill up political rallies and fuel those tag lines like your thread title..making stupid political decisions

Time for the motherfuckers to reap their ujinga
I think its a bit disingenuous and condescending to label other peoples decision as stupid, people look at things differently and just because they don't fit into a specific thought pattern does not necessarily mean they are stupid.

'peasants' should be taxed directly like PAYE.Let them feel the pinch.. after all they are the ones with the majority votes who keep on voting for thugs making our lives hard. I cannot be taxed almost a third of my salary for it to be misappropriated and given out as handouts to churches and others. Kila mtu afinywe back to their senses
how do you tax unemployed guys, the thing with the poor is that life is always at the worst, so hata if prices go up they never feel the difference they are used to always living at the survival stage - the thing with poor countries like kenya is that there is only a small portion of the population that can be taxed, because only a small portion live above the poverty line and until such a time when at least majority move into the working/middle class category it will remain like that - the rich know how to corrupt their way around paying taxes, the poor have nothing to pay and so its the middle class who are left with that burden.

Lakini looking at the flip side, the poor never get to enjoy government services, so its not like they are enjoying services they dont pay for.

A third ni wewe - simple maths PAYE average ni 30% na kila kitu ni VAT 16% then add Excise duty Average 2.8% - This makes its half - for any month - two weeks you work for the corrupt government.
