Kenyans Decry high taxes

Nairobi, Kenya Current Affairs December 17 @ 4:53pm

A majority of Kenyans feel weighed down by the high taxation and would evade paying tax if given a chance. A mobile phone survey by a lobby group "Twaweza ni Sisi" reveals that Kenyans justify tax evasion citing the high cost of living and poor services offered by the Government. Half of those polled also claim that tax evasion is widespread amongst individuals, companies, and organizations. They cite lack of income opportunities, high cost of living, corruption, hunger, effects of covid 19, as among the top challenges plaguing them. The data was collected from 3000 respondents through random sampling in mid-September this year.
