If you look at the gazette notice, you’ll see that is what is happening. We are saying all Kenyans are paying their taxes.” Raila said

Raila stated that it is sad that all Kenyans pay taxes, but when it comes to opportunities, some communities are discriminated against. The ODM leader stated that Kenyans were undergoing discrimination, but most of them did not have a voice to fight for their rights.

“This is discrimination. Meaning some people are not Kenyan, yet they are taxed daily. When it comes to being employed, they’re discriminated against. That is why we’re saying this is not the Kenya we wanted. This Kenya has discrimination where the people don’t have a voice,” he added.
