    Paying taxes is fundamental; no one can claim to hide behind the constitution. If they insist that they are not going to pay, then Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) can wait for MP’s to leave office (be voted out) then sue them as ordinary citizens for back taxes and penalties.

    These MPs need to lead by example. If they expect all Kenyans to pay taxes, they should also do the same. If not, Kenyans need to use the only known TRUE power we have over these MPs, VOTES. Lets get all MPs who have refused to pay taxes. That will be a very strong massage for future engagements with these individuals. Lets not get caught up in the business of taking money from them in exchange of votes. Take the money if you have to, but cast your vote wisely.

    I come from Nyaribari chache and I can see clearly my mpis among those who oppose to pay tax while he is being paid through the common citizen's tax.I, with afew other people have cried foul to the extent that we have made him develope a constituency website so that those of us who live in the diaspora can track development in our nation.You know what, these guys are so cunning such that they give a satisfying post such as the projects are on.While the reality on the ground is that the money has been depleted before identifying any project.Can these mps be followed and be prosecuted with long time service behind bars for lack of transparency and accountability? Wondering areri sam

    Every MP MUST pay tax, then the others should follow. If not that, let no one commit him or her self in paying tax.
