Kenyans should just let this tax thing go. They’ve been outwitted again by their erstwhile leaders and it’s futile to make a fuss about it. The same “gentlemen” you’d be complaining to are the ones who passed it into law. Unless you like crocs tears, nigutee.

It amazes me the depth to which the tax collector has reached. Ati now they are chasing white chocolate and sugar confectioneries! How much of it is consumed or exported from Kenya annually? Ridiculous!
