Mumias East Member of Parliament, Peter Salasya is yet again the talk of the town after his undated video surfaced online.

In the video, a visibly intoxicated Salasya, who was accompanied by an unknown person, commented on President William Ruto's three-day state tour to the US.

"As the president goes there he must borrow a leaf on taxes alone. I am in the committee of agriculture and today we have been looking at the budget, the budget has been cutoff like almost 30% and now we are seeing the increase in taxes," he said.

Commenting on the Finance Bill 2024, Salasya said that the only way the country can attract investors is by cutting off the budget and reducing taxes so that money can flow.

"We are cutting budgets and introducing more taxes, how will the money be in circulation? He (Ruto) must accept one thing; to cut the budget and reduce taxes so that people can come and invest in this country," he stated.

Here is the video that has elicited mixed reactions online.
