Kenyans on twitter urge their MPs to reject financial bill

Inside the National Assembly.

Kenyans online users embarked on a mission communication to their respective members of parliament urging them to vote against proposed amendments to the Finance Bill, 2008 on Thursday.

The campaign to reach out to MP  kicked off on Wednesday after Nasa leader Raila Odinga’s son Raila Junior communicated his reservations to Kibra MP Ken Okoth.

Junior urged Twitter users to make it known to their respective MPs that they are against any introduction of VAT on petroleum products, however small the percentage.

A day earlier, Raila Junior had publicly differed with his father after the latter chaired a Nasa parliamentary group meeting and resolved to support the 8 per cent VAT.
