Kenya’s Farmers Party Submits its Memo to Parliament


The Farmers Party- Kenya has today submitted its memoranda on the finance bill focusing on areas that, if taxed differently, will make farming in Kenyan uneconomical and further hurt farmers economically.

“We have also called on the government to increase allocation to agriculture from a paltry 1.39% of budget to the 10% required under Maputo Declaration, where Kenya is a signatory,” stated the Party leader and chairperson Farmers Party after submitting the memo for consideration.

Nyakera has urged Kenyans not to prioritize areas that support the wealthy more such as VAT exemption on helicopters yet the masses are punished more with taxes.

Attached is a copy of the submission.
