Kuria Kimani complains about receiving Ksh 168K from Kenyans after his phone number was leaked (Video)

Molo MP Kimani Kuria, who is also the chairperson of the Finance Committee in the National Assembly recently complained about his phone number and other members of parliament’s numbers leaking to the public.

This happened at a time when the conversation on the finance bill roped in numerous netizens’ sentiments.

While speaking in parliament, Kuria explained that he had received numerous text messages and even money to his phone number.

”Honorable speaker, I have written to the clark wondering what to do with the 168 thousand shillings sent to my M-pesa because, receiving these gifts from members of the public is against the state laws of the republic. I’ll be seeking your guidance on what to do with the money,” he started off.

He further explained that most of the money he received was just as a confirmation on whether the number leaked was indeed his. As much as he tried to return the money, he couldn’t.

”Although these people breached the data protection act by sharing our numbers, Kenyans wrote to us SMS and called us. And some of them were generous enough to share with us one shilling and 10 shillings to confirm whether our numbers are correct. I tried reversing the money but it was impossible”

Kuria gives amendment on finance bill

The Finance Bill recently underwent implementation. In the Bill, excise duty on alcoholic beverages will now be taxed based on alcohol content and not volume.

Additionally, pension contributions exemption will increase from KSh20,000 per month to KSh30,000.

On the President’s part, he explained that more resources have been allocated to education because it is the greatest equaliser

“The money we are putting into education is not an expenditure; it is an investment because we are investing in the future of our children,” he said.

He said KSh18 billion has been provided for the employment of Junior Secondary teachers who are on internship.

He said funds have also been provided to hire 20,000 interns next month.
