Therefore ,increasing the price of basic commodity such as unga, milk, bread, rice, sanitary towel, infant formula, fertilizer and seed placing majority of Kenyans who currently live on less than a dollar a day at risk of hunger contrary to article 43 of the constitution that guarantee every Kenyan the right to food.
In that light members of public will stage a mass protest dubbed “Say no to VAT ACT 2013! (VAT ACT reloaded) “on 15th October 2013 in Nairobi where member will meet at Tom Mboya Monument at 10am before proceeding to parliament building to demand answers over the escalating prices of basic commodities especially food stuffs, introduction of price control bill and calling for the full implementation of Article 43 of the constitution of Kenya
Members of unga revolution will be holding countrywide rallies, meeting and debate as part of mobilization.
We urge upon Kenyans to turn up in large numbers to show opposition to the act and exercise their Constitutional Rights as per Article 1, 3 & 37 of the Constitution of Kenya.
