Kenyan MPs refuses to pay taxes on their allowances.

The Kenyans have been undergoing unprecedented economic difficulties as the post election violence and as a result of the global economic crisis. On the other hand, the insensitive Kenyan politicians are at it again. They are blocking a bill that will make them pay taxes just like any other Kenyan. What is this suppose to mean? What do they think they are? They increase their allowances and refuse to pay taxes? Unbelievable!
We as Kenyan, being peace makers, may not get the strength to demonstrate on the streets, but we say this is horrible behavior from our members of parliament. Basically what you are demonstrating to us is that you don’t care. You are out to get rich at all cost and you are willing to be involved in illegality to reach that end. We are keenly watching and God too as we patiently labor to eat from the remains from your high tables. Remember that what you are now “eating” with impunity is “cooked” by us. We have told you to wash your hands clean with the tax man before you eat just like any other citizen but you have literally refused simply because we have given you the power to change the Kenyan laws at will. Please remember the power of our votes and to this power NOBODY and I say NOBODY is “unbwogable”.
It is obvious that as you refuse to pay taxes on your allowances, you are intending to raise taxes on the common man. Is this really fair given that you already have hefty salaries? In the eye`s of any reasonable judge it is not fair and our living God will not sit watching you do this with all the smiles.
Hon. Raila and Kibaki, the Kenyans eyes are on you to say now to this. Lady Karua, you need our top position votes in the next election. Can you say no to this just to leave a legacy that all Kenyans will remember you for? Hon. Muchuki, we know that you stood on your ground when everybody did not like the changes you introduced in the matatu sector. Will you say NOW as the minister of Finance to this illegal act that your fellow Mps are advocating for?
