Debate on the controversial 2023 Financial Bill continue to hit hard on impervious rocks across the country, deriving diverse viewpoints from different Kenyans.

According to him, making these products more expensive to Kenyan ladies means making them unaffordable whose results will be billions of losses in the sector.

“A government that is stealing from our ladies is not a good government, and a real man should not steal from ladies.” He said during an inclusive interview with some media house in the country.

“Our ladies are now putting on these wigs, the weaves to attract tourists. And the main tourist attraction in this country are our beautiful ladies,” Babu added.
The MP further castigated Ruto’s administration, saying the only thing they have failed to tax is Oxygen
