Ruiru - President Uhuru Kenyatta has told former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to stop politicizing the implementation of the VAT Bill because he was in office when the law was being prepared.
According to President Kenyatta, the Jubilee government should not be blamed for implementing the law that has resulted in an increase in prices of goods since the current government only finalised the law that had already been drafted, Daily Nation reports.
He however warned traders who are taking advantage of the situation to increase prices of basic commodities, saying that action will be taken against them.
