The National Youth Sector Alliance has threatened to asks its members to stop cooperating with the Kenya Revenue Authority if money lost in the NYS scam is not recovered. The group says it will ask its members to stop filling their tax returns and stop declaring their income.
“Treasury is quick to proposed rising taxation yet out taxes are being wasted left right and centre. The government is over borrowing leaving our generations with trillions of shillings in debt yet some people are misusing out tax money. If no action is taken, the solutions remain to starve the beast by refusing to pay taxes.” – They said.
They also called for parliament to cut NYS budgetary allocation and also to make sure young genuine suppliers are paid within 14 days.
“Parliament to cut the budgetary allocating to the National Youth Service until when they will have the capacity to absorb such a budget. They got way too much funding and little capacity. The NYS is a good idea turned to a looting arena.” Reads part of the statement
They asked the president to clean up his house starting with the Jubilee Party for its failure to pay suppliers for as long as one and a half years. Those presents were Emmanuel Dennis – Chairman, Brian Mbugua, Vincent Odongo, Laban Mosi and Morrison Shihemi, also present was Hon. George Kanure, Hon. Pablo Gitau, Eric Ombewa, and Daniel Kiptoo. Others were James Mungara, Maurice Ogesare, Joseph Atela, Jane Wamarwa, Peter Oyugi and Martin Waithaka.
“Our weapons against corruption are ready. What we need is the will to win. The youth should not be intimidated by the fact that we are young. We are filled with boundless energy, unfathomable courage, and a sense of wonder. We should use these to our advantage and for the greater good. We urge the youth to stand against corruption; to embrace strong and positive moral values, and to continue to engage the government and policy makers on issues geared towards positive change in Kenya.” They concluded.
The said that corruption will not be defeated in a single day, but it can be defeated in a generation. It will be defeated by their generation.
