Ruto’s Govt Putting in Place Strategies to Reduce Cost of Living, MP Ndindi Nyoro

 Kiharu Member of parliament Ndindi Nyoro has assured Kenyans that the government is working on various modalities to reduce cost of living.

On Saturday as he flagged off a walk at St James ACK cathedral in Murang’a, Ndindi said after implementing various measures, Kenyans will enjoy reduced prices for basic commodities.

He noted the government is working to expand the tax base by ensuring many Kenyans pay taxes so as to ensure the country will not continue to rely on expensive foreign loans.

Ndindi who is also chairperson of the parliamentary committee for budgeting explained that with creation of more business opportunities and increased tax collection, the country will be independent economically and thus Kenyans will not be forced to pay high interest rates for sourced loans.

He further said the government is working to increase agricultural production by providing subsidies to farmers.

“We are aware Kenyans are going through hard times, but the government is working to ensure it puts a strong economic foundation which will make the country’s economy stable.

“Removal of subsidies will also stabilize our economy and eventually Kenyans will breathe a sigh of relief from the hard economic conditions,” he added.

The legislator encouraged farmers to register with ongoing registration for subsidized fertilizer saying the cheap input will increase production thus food security.

“Provision of subsidized farm inputs is another measure the government is employing to ensure increased productivity. Farmers will get more returns and thus boost the economy. My appeal to Kenyans is to give the government some time to work on the measures to improve the economy,” he further said.

During the occasion, Ndindi flagged off a 25-kilometre walk to raise funds worth Sh 120 million so as to facilitate construction of a retreat and prayer centre for the ACK Diocese of Mt Kenya Central at Weithaga within Kiharu constituency.

On his part, the diocesan bishop Rev. Timothy Gichere explained the funds will also help to upgrade Weithaga Bible College, adding that the county and the surrounding areas do not have a retreat and a prayer centre where Christians go for pilgrimage.
