On the intended introduction of 16 per cent tax on fuel starting September 1 Mudavadi said the Government is resorting to squeezing taxes from Kenyans to compensate for heavy debts the country has been borrowing. "Both Uhuru and myself were Finance ministers before, he (Uhuru) knows that the excess taxes imposed to people and rising petrol and foodstuffs prices are as a result of the huge debts," he said.
Mudavadi indicated that he was determined to lead the country after Uhuru's tenure. He regretted that the Sh39 billion, which was duty exemption on sugar last year should have been ploughed into the ailing sugar factories. According to him, a clique of individuals are behind the sufferings of sugarcane, tea and Maize farmers from Western Kenya.
