The first Orange Democratic Movement party and Azimio Politician has now come out to speak just moments after revelation that the head of state President William Ruto had bowed to the pressure on the controversial house levy and had agreed to reduce it down to 1.5% from 3%.

ODM politician and Kileleshwa Ward MCA Robert Alai has become the first ODM politician to commend the head of state for such a move while saying that he was encouraged as taxpayer who is also a MCA.

“Great to hear that that there is change. Encouraged as a taxpayer who is also MCA.” Robert Alai wrote.

This comes at a time when the Finance Bill drafters are currently effecting proposals made by Kenyans and other players before the bill could be brought before the National Assembly for debate and approval.

It is interesting to note that Alai’s statement and approval for the changes comes at a time when the Azimio on the other hand is calling for the total abolishment of the bill with Raila and other Azimio principals threatening to rally Kenyans against the bill should it pass the narional assembly.
