The National Assembly and Senate have devised a four-pronged approach to thwart President William Ruto’s ambitions as outlined in the Finance Bill, 2023, according to opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Opposition to counter proposed taxation

The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition has several goals, one of which is to campaign for an open vote in which a member of parliament is called upon to indicate whether he votes “Yes” or “No” for a particular provision of a law.


Azimio thinks that as a result, the majority of MPs will be afraid of the ire of Kenyans. If they support the measure, it will be perceived as adding to the responsibilities already placed on citizens.

In order to “expose MPs who voted in favor of more taxes and label them enemies of the people,” the coalition intends to gather information on the open voting and make it public through its media platform.


The Kenya daily has also learned that Azimio is working behind the scenes to persuade common Kenyans to write a letter to Parliament opposing the bill’s suggested methods for obtaining money.


Additionally, it is inciting several organizations to submit rejection memos to Parliament.

The coalition would then utilize the memoranda to support its position during the discussion on the House floor, claiming that Kenyans from all socioeconomic backgrounds have rejected the measure.


When the House reconvenes on June 6, according to Deputy Minority Leader Robert Mbui of the Sunday Nation, Azimio will defeat President Ruto for the first time in Parliament thanks to the Finance Bill.


“I have a strong sense that we will prevail on the House floor. If this measure is passed in its current form, we will fight on behalf of the Kenyans who elected us and who would suffer the most.


We will implore Kenyan Kwanza to oppose the bill since Kenyans don’t want anything to do with it.
