Safina party presidential candidate Jimi Wanjigi has revealed his plan to waiver the tax burden for families with three children and above if he wins the presidency in the August elections. In fact, he explained that those with six children will not pay a penny for tax.

Speaking in Murang'a, the presidential hopeful said that his administration will reduce taxes paid by various households depending on the number of children they have.

In his tax plan, the businessman-turn-politician also said that families with six children will be exempted from paying taxes.

Wanjigi who is championing family issues in his campaigns said that his plan to reduce taxes for families is meant to promote "Africanism".

"Kwa serikali yangu, mkizaa watoto watatu; tunapunguza tax yako, ukizaa wanne tutaipunguza zaidi, ukiwa na tano tuipunguza tax yako zaidi kabisa. Lakini mkifika sita tax yako inang'olewa kabisa," he said.

(Households with over six children will be completely exempted from paying taxes.)

The first-time presidential hopeful also faulted President Uhuru Kenyatta over the high cost of living in the country.

He claimed that the Jubilee government has led the country into high borrowing, a situation he says has affected the country's economic growth.

Wanjigi, therefore, offered himself as the best candidate to salvage the country from its current economic status noting that his competitors have nothing to show for leadership despite being in government for a long time.

“Those who are competing for the presidency have been in politics for decades and have nothing new to make the lives of Kenyans better.

“Kenyans, this time, need to elect fresh people into politics who will tackle unemployment, and inflation and bring development in all key sectors,” Wanjigi said.
