“I Don’t Mind” President Ruto Acknowledges Being Called Zakayo

President William Ruto has brushed aside critiques of his policies, which are marked by heightened taxation and deductions.

Speaking to Kenyan residents in Japan on Wednesday, February 7th, the president emphasized that Kenya’s development will not rely on external sources or debt, but rather on the collective efforts of its citizens.

The president highlighted that it’s imperative for Kenyans to roll up their sleeves and contribute to the country’s development. He noted that Japan’s tax as a percentage of GDP is 34.8%, significantly higher than Kenya’s 15%.


Ruto affirmed his commitment to ensuring that Kenyans receive commensurate value for the taxes they pay or for any services they acquire.

“If we have to develop our country, Kenyans must roll up their sleeves and develop their country. Japan is built by the Japanese using their own taxes. Kenya will be built by Kenya using our own revenues and our own taxes.

That is a statement that we must tell each other. The one thing that I have committed myself to do is that we must then provide a guarantee that every Kenyan who pays for whatever service or whatever tax that money should not be stolen by anybody,” he stated.
