The commander-in-chief has vowed to fight against anyone who will go against the bill.
“I am waiting to see the MPs who will go against the government’s plan to give their voters employment. We want to see and know those going against this Finance Bill.
As a leader, you are already getting a mortgage due to the taxes paid by the people of Kenya. Why would you deny these young people that opportunity? Is it not right for us to know who will vote against the bill?
Those who are rejecting the bill are only doing so because they had been voted in those leadership positions by the people. I am waiting to hear their explanation of why they will vote against it. How can we agree during elections that housing will create jobs and other opportunities, but when it comes to implementation, we betray our people?”President William Ruto.

“There is a lot of incitement around this whole Finance Bill issue. I was in Kitui yesterday and their MP spoke about cessation and people were clapping. And then soon after he was telling me they need roads, where does he expect the money to build roads to come from?”DP Rigathi Gachagua.
Kenyans decry that their will may not be taken into account as much as necessary.
