Ruto: Now I know why my promises take time to be achieved


Ruto: Now I know why my promises take time to be achieved

President William Ruto, speaking during a sermon on Sunday, discussed the commitments he has extended to the Kenyan people and the insights he has gained from them.

Reflecting on the theme of the sermon, President Ruto emphasized the necessity of time and patience in fulfilling promises. He acknowledged that leaders often overlook the duration citizens may have to wait for these commitments to be realized.

He highlighted the issue that arises when leaders are unable to deliver on promises within the expected timeframe.

“I have learnt an inspiring lesson today in Church that promises require time and patience to be achieved. When we make promises as leaders, we forget that they will take time. I have always wondered why the promises I make take time to achieve but now I know,” he said.

“I have learnt an inspiring lesson today. I must confess I have never seen it the way Bishop Mwaura has put it today. Whoever said life is a journey in learning said the truth because today I’ve learnt many things.”

Since assuming office, the President has made commitments to the people of Kenya. He is currently facing significant pressure from both the opposition and the public to fulfill his outlined agenda.

Despite his pledge to reduce the cost of living, the reality has been contrary, with living expenses notably increasing.

There were assurances to alleviate the tax burden and lower the cost of living, attributed to policies established by the previous administration.

However, many Kenyans have expressed worries about the ongoing measures taken by the Kenya Kwanza administration, which have resulted in increased taxes on various goods and services within the country.

The government has implemented strategies to raise revenue, often through heightened charges for specific services and the imposition of various taxes.

Since Ruto’s presidency began, several taxes have been introduced, including a 1.5 per cent housing levy on gross salaries, a 5 per cent withholding tax on local digital content creators, a turnover tax for businesses with sales ranging from Sh1 to Sh25 million, a 16 per cent value-added tax on petroleum products, excise duty on gaming and betting, and adjustments to the Pay-As-You-Earn tax bands, which now stand at 32.5 per cent and 35 per cent for incomes between Sh500,000 and over Sh800,000 per month, respectively.
