Opposition Now Backs Kenyatta's 8% Fuel Tax Hike

A parliamentary group meeting of the Raila Odinga-led National Super Alliance has resolved to support President Uhuru Kenyatta's memorandum of a lower increase in Value Added Tax on fuel by 8%. The move is set to substantially raise the cost of living, for a year. The coalition, however, wants the government to eliminate wastage and be economical with the resources.
