Kenyans have until 5pm Monday to submit their views in writing on the Value added Tax (Amendment of the Rate of Tax) Order, 2020, to the National Assembly Clerk.

The 2020 Tax Laws (Amendment) Bill, which President Uhuru Kenyatta announced, contains measures to address the taxation regime.

It is one of the legislative measures that MPs will be considering when they convene a special sitting on Wednesday.

“Pursuant to the provisions of Article 118 (1) (b) of the Constitution, the Clerk of the National Assembly invites interested members of public to submit written memoranda regarding the order,” reads an advert that appeared in the local dailies.

The invitation to the public to submit their views is in line with Article 118 of Constitution, which provides that parliament will facilitate public participation and involvement in legislative and other businesses of the House and its committees.

Last Friday, National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi gazetted the special sitting of the House. “A special sitting shall be held in the main Parliament buildings on Wednesday from 10am,” reads the gazette notice dated April 3.
