Kenyans on social media react to budget
SEE ALSO :KRA to host tax seminar this week @ConsumersKenya tweeted: We can boast of a Sh3.07 trillion budget but with #PublicDebtKE hitting the dreaded Sh5 trillion mark, we are living way beyond our means and on excessive debt. Cut non-revenue mega projects. Lower tax on food, medicine and energy #BudgetKE2018 #ConsumersBeware. @JOHNGITHANGA tweeted: #BudgetKE2018 Kenyans are not upbeat about this year's budget reading...Presently, Kenya's Fiscal Deficit stands at 8.9%, a whopping Sh870 billion will go to Debt Repayments, needless to say that Corruption has significantly crippled economic growth. @mwalimu_dida tweeted: #BudgetKE2018 our debt just escalated to 5,000,000,000,000! Can we ever recover from this? Or have we been officially recolonized? Humour did not miss the reactions including from below twitter user Paulo Mtangazaji. @PauloMtangazaji tweeted: #BudgetKE2018 totalling to Sh3.7 trillion. I think corruption should be allocated Sh1 trillion so that they can at least leave us something.
