Police have flagged as fake a letter doing rounds on social media claiming that the protests against Finance Bill 2024 have been authorised.

The letter, ostensibly, signed by the Inspector General of Police authorised protesters to march on Parliament Road from noon to 5 pm today whilst maintaining peace and order.

Organisers of Tuesday’s Occupy Parliament protests have called for countrywide demonstrations Thursday to continue piling pressure on MPs to shoot down the Finance Bill, 2024.

The government is looking to collect Sh346 billion through the Bill, Finance Committee chairman Kimani Kuria told Parliament on Wednesday as the debate got underway.

The Bill moved to the second reading stage on Wednesday with Kuria informing the House committee dropped some contentious clauses.

They include proposed VAT on bread, Eco levy on locally manufactured goods such as diapers, an increase of mobile and international money transfer charges and the 2.5 motor vehicle tax.
