President Ruto’s remarks on the removal of taxes on yellow maize, raw materials for animal feeds, and packaging of tea and coffee is a step towards economic growth and development.
Kenyans in various locations, especially those living in prestigious local and regional areas, can now enjoy lower prices for essential goods.
This move is especially important for farmers and livestock keepers, as the cost of animal feeds and yellow maize has been a significant burden.
The removal of these taxes will enable farmers to expand their production capacity, leading to an increase in the supply of essential goods and raw materials.
This will not only improve the quality of life for Kenyans but also stimulate the agricultural sector, leading to an increase in the overall GDP of the country.
The elimination of packaging duties on tea and coffee is also a welcome move, as this will reduce the cost of packaging for farmers.
This will lead to an increase in the quality of packaging, which will ultimately attract more buyers, thus stimulating the tea and coffee industries.
In conclusion, President Ruto’s decision to remove taxes on yellow maize, raw materials for animal feeds, and packaging for tea and coffee is commendable.
