The Kenya Airline Pilots Association have shared their views on the Finance Bill 2023.
They arguethat Kenya is a free-market capitalist economy and therefore the state cannot force members to join the National Housing Development Plan and pay a mandatory contribution towards it.
Further, most of its members have already secured housing and also, vital information on the project remains unavailable.
The association notes that the project does not give members an option to determine the nature of the houses they want and their location.
The association therefore proposes the housing levy be made voluntary to those wishing to own houses under a government programme and also for the government to suspend the housing plan until when there will be an increment in salaries and a reduction in the cost of living.
