Two Shillings Isn’t Enough; MP Aspirant Calls on Government to Lower Food Prices Even Further

Jimmy Mwithi speaks with journalists in Mukalwa.

Jimmy mwithi, a Matungulu member of parliament aspirant, has urged the government to reduce taxes on basic foods so that their prices can fall.

Mwithi said at a rally in Mukalwa that the two-shilling reduction in Unga was like a drop in the ocean.

According to him if really the government needs to relieve Kenyans of the high food prices the price of unga should go down to sh.90.

He suggested that the government lower the VAT on certain commodities.

“Kenyans are still burdened until the price is reduced to Sh.90.

The government is under pressure to act and free Kenyans from the shackles of high food prices. Some families are barely scraping by “Mwithi stated.

“Some families can’t remember the last time they ate bread. Many people cannot afford kerosene, unga, rice, or gas. Lets accept that hunger pangs are biting as days go by,”he added.

He went on to rally Matungulu residents to vote for him because he is the only one with ideas to transform the constituency.

He reiterated that poor leadership is the root cause of many current problems.

“Consider electing capable leaders who will transform our community. Once elected as a member of parliament, I have big plans for Matungulu. Let’s talk about roads, water, schools, and a variety of other topics. I can assure you that the locals have yet to witness true leadership “He stated.

Mwithi had traveled with CCU gubernatorial candidate Nzioka Waita, as well as Senatorial candidates Muthama Ngengele and Mutua Katuku.
