KTN news anchor rants over newly-imposed housing levy

Published

on

KTN news anchor Linda Ogutu has shared her misgivings with the new law which will compel Kenyans to fund a multi-billion government housing project.

The ever-smiling presenter took to her official Twitter page to rant over the bill that was signed into law by President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday.

Ms Ogutu expressed her reservations to the idea of being taxed to fund for the construction of houses which she has little chances of ever owning.

Yaaaani I dont even know what to feel….So my money will be deducted….for a housing project that I have no say over….with almost NIL probability that I will actually get to own one of those houses…..all these at ZERO option…….and am supposed to act like its ok? Nkt.

The newly-introduced housing levy that will have Kenyans deducted 1.5 percent from their monthly salaries to help finance a new low cost house funding.

The initial bill proposed by the National Treasury was at 0.5 per cent of the gross pay per month matched by employers, but this was rejected by MPs last month.

However, President Kenyatta reinstated the levy raising it even higher to 1.5 percent.

The news anchor’s sentiments are a reflection of the general resentment from the public over the government’s decision to impose these taxes on Kenyans.

Our Thrilling Two Hours Tour at Victory Gardens Phase 3, 4 & 5 on the 18th of September 2020

Published

on

It was a very electrifying afternoon as we mentored our social media followers on how to build positive and remarkable relationships.

We touched on various life issues including how to laugh with a confident and deliberate abandonment, how to build extraordinarily positive relationships in families, workplaces, with God and in our social lives.

We also spared a cool 30 minutes to point at plot beacons for our customers, showing them how trees at this gated community are flourishing plus showing customers how Optiven has done the drainages.

Oh! We even had great fun crawling through one of the drainage culvert, which easily accommodated Optiven Team Leader as he easily crept to the other end. You can catch up with the Facebook Live here: (https://web.facebook.com/watch/?v=776150606288508&extid=GOZRywQJbqSrzSDM)

You can also catch up with the entire episode on You Tube right here: https://youtu.be/apZ14dvBg_g

What’s more, we prayed and prophesied for more customers to start building their dream homes in this gated community; to live victorious, joyfully and peacefully, in this extraordinary project that is located at the heart on Kitengela in Nairobi Metropolis.

If you want to join this remarkable and amazing project or to refer someone, just get in touch with us today. (Every person who refers someone will be mentioned on our next show)
