So our lawmakers want to make changes to our country’s tax regime. How interesting. I mean, seriously. These elected members want to ensure that those earning sh50000 and below are tax exempt. Also on their to-do list is a reduction of the fuel levy and lowering of the Value Added Tax from 16% to below 10%, in order to make life much more bearable to the common citizen.
They don’t stop there. Next is a cutback on the salaries of all state officers by 57%, including the President, his deputy and the judiciary, and cutting down the salaries, membership and budgetary allocations of constitutional commissions so as to bring down the ballooning wage bill and free up resources for development.
