National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has delivered the Finance Bill 2018 to President Uhuru Kenyatta for consideration. This even as debate over the imposition of a 16 percent tax on all fuel products took a new dimension with Suba South MP John Mbadi accusing Parliament’s leadership of withholding the bill passed by the National Assembly late last month. The bill suspends the recently imposed tax on petroleum products for a further two years. Mbadi spoke a day after Treasury maintained that the 16% VAT on fuel will remain in place as the government seeks other avenues to bridge the budget deficit.
