[PHOTOS] Empty Streets In Eastleigh As Traders Protest High Taxation By KRA

Traders in Eastleigh closed shops in protest to increase in taxes levied on imports by the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).

Thile traders are protestijg the increase in tax levied on 40ft containers.

Since 2017 KRA has increased the tax on each container from Kshs. 800K to 1.6 million to 2.5 to 3 Million. KRA is now demanding Kshs. 12 Million from each container.

This has not gone well with the traders.

“This is actually more than the cost of the clothes in the containers”, said one trader.

The protestors were joined by their area MP Yusuf Hassan. The Legislator accused KRA of raising taxes without consultation.

“If you have already bought your goods and they are in the high seas, then Kenya Revenue Authority decides to raise taxes, without consultation…that’s a problem”, the Kamukunji legislator said.

Some of those affected took to social media to condemn KRA under the hashtag; ‘KRAKillingCargoCompanies.
