Proposal to increase business fees will hurt traders, say Kiambu MPs

Traders, MPs oppose Waititu move to raise business levies

Kiambu county government’s proposal to raise business fees has come under fierce criticism from Members of Parliament and traders. Thika Town MP Patrick Wainaina and Kiambu Woman representative Gathoni Wamuchomba are unhappy with governor Ferdinand Waititu’s decision to increase trade permit charges for salons, barber shops and other small businesses after initially promising to scrap them.
