Wednesday December 19, 2018 – President Uhuru
Kenyatta has been dealt a severe blow in his plans to leave a rich legacy when
he retires from politics in 2022.
This
is after a court, on Wednesday, halted his housing plan under
the Big Four Agenda
.
In
its directive, the Employment and Labour Relations Court temporarily suspended
the implementation of the 1.5% housing tax for salaried workers.
The
directive that will take effect until January 21st, 2019 followed an
application by the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU).
In
its argument, COTU, which is led by Francis Atwoli, said
the implementation of the levy was unconstitutional and amounts to double
taxation.
COTU
further argued that levying the housing tax on the basic salary of employees
will have far-reaching implications on the right to fair remuneration.
“The
petitioner is aggrieved that it’s unconstitutional and legally invalid to
subject Kenyans to double taxation by imposing the 1.5% housing development
levy on basic salaries,” COTU lawyer, Okweh Achiando, told
the court.
President Uhuru’s affordable
housing project seeks to build 500,000 houses by 2022 and is part of
his legacy alongside 
manufacturing, universal health
coverage 
and food
security
.
