Busia Senator Okiya Omtatah says he will challenge the Finance Bill 2023 in court.

Speaking from the Senate on Wednesday, Omatatah opined that the bill contained issues that threaten to destroy the industrial base of the country.

“Commenting about the finance bill here is like I’m an American wrestler wrestling outside the ring. For as long as the finance bill will not come here, the only arena I can engage the finance bill in is outside this house,” Omtatah said.

He added; “This is a war on the Republic of Kenya, it’s a fight for the soul of this country and we are not going to shy from it. We don’t have another country, we all have this country.”

President William Ruto previously pleaded with Omatath not to challenge the Finance Bill in court.
