Kuku Tax: Nairobians to pay Sh25 tax for every chicken brought from up-country – VIDEO

Published

on

Nairobi residents are in for a rude shock should Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko have his way.

Sonko wants to introduce tax on all chicken brought from up-country.

His administration is working on a bill that will see residents pay a Sh25 tax for every chicken that enters the capital city.

In June, Nairobi Finance and Economic Planning Executive Charles Kerich announced new taxes and levies that, if approved by the County Assembly, will see city residents dig deeper into their pockets for City Hall’s Sh35.2 billion annual budget.

Apart from chicken, owners of cats and dogs from up-country will fork out Sh1,000 as well.

The bill also includes increased parking fees, new charges for garbage collection, fire certificates and inspection for cats and dogs.

Under the Finance Bill 2019, Nairobians will pay Sh400 parking fees up from Sh200, a fire certificate fee of Sh2,000 per annum for all city households, Sh1,000 in health inspection fee for every dog and cat and between Sh100 to Sh600 for garbage collection for all homes.

NMG CEO’s message

A memo by the Nation Media Group’s CEO Stephen Gitagama earlier in the week had outlined that the media company is keen to retain only those with the relevant skills and expertise.

“The Group seeks to radically change its business model from print advertising and physical reader copy to digital advertising, ePaper subscription and content-driven reader revenue with the objective of establishing leadership in the mobile publishing landscape in Africa while exploring other new revenue streams in the experiential and technology space.

“This will require retooling and resourcing the Group with relevant skill sets critical for success in the new business environment. Regrettably this will result in reduction of our workforce effective Friday July 3, 2020,” the memo read in part.

Its official! Jalang’o to replace Andrew Kibe at Kiss 100

Published

on

Forme Milele FM and Comedian Felix Odwuor aka Jalang’o has conformed that he is replacing Andrew Kibe at Kiss 100.

Speaking to Andrew Kibe on his Bonga na Jalas YouTube series, the comedian confirmed he had been given an offer from Kiss 100 to co-host the Kiss Breakfast alongside radio queen Kamene Goro.

He added that he will begin working on Monday next week.

“Yes I’m taking over your job. This job is mine and you are handing it over to me and I didn’t know that you are leaving, and I didn’t fire you.

“You left yourself and I have been given an offer to take over your spot…. Guys Monday next week, Kamene and Jalas,” said Jalang’o.

Speaking on his exit from Kiss 100, Andrew Kibe said that as soon as Covid-19 hit, he had a misunderstanding with his boss at Radio Africa.

“This is what happened, just when Covid hit mimi na mdosi wangu tukakosana na unajua mdosi wangu ni nani. Huyu msee aliniangalia na madharau,” stated Kibe.

He also mentioned that he gave a three months’ notice which elapsed on June 30, 2020 because the job did not make any sense to him anymore.

“I had to give a three month notice and say by the time June 30 comes, that’s my last day. I gave the notice while you were still working at Milele.

He added that no one knew he was leaving, including his co-host and longtime friend Kamene Goro who got to know of the development a few days to his final day.

“You didn’t know. I didn’t tell anybody anything. I didn’t reveal even to Kamene amekam kujua juzi tu, she is devastated but she knew just the other day,” added Kibe.
