The Civil Society Budget Advocacy Group is set to launch a road map to protest the approved mobile money tax after the first campaign failed.
The group’s first campaign focused on soliciting over 250 signatures from the MPs to ensure they reject to the mobile money tax . In an interview, the group’s executive director Julius Mukunda said the meeting shall be held today with a clear roadmap to ensure that the tax is not put into the books of laws.
“Much as the first campaign failed we will not sit back and watch people suffering injustice as a result of the improved tax which is totally unfair ” He said.
According to the group, this is a rather more harmful alternative to the economy and the public. They insist that their campaign is not over because they thought that the Members of Parliament would change their minds but all was in vain.
“We are to load a new road map to ensure taxes collapse from the books of laws by the end of the week and we are too optimistic when it comes to injustice” Said Julius
.To note is that the recently passed excise duty amendment act of 2018 imposes 1 % tax on mobile money transactions and 200 shillings daily on social media users.
