If you had asked me this question earlier last week I would have told you YES, let's congratulate President Uhuru Kenyatta for his reelection. Even as I questioned the results relays and was troubled by Kenyatta's constantly fixed 54/44 margin lead by Kenyatta throughout the transmitted results timeline - a major statistical anomaly. But since then, it has become increasingly hard to do so, given what we now know. Kenyans deserve the truth and their political will respected and upheld; to be led by leaders they duly elected at the ballot box and not "computer generated" ones as being alleged by NASA. Did the Jubilee government colluding with the IEBC, easily pull the biggest political heist of all time and will they get away with it? I felt that NASA wouldn't be able to articulate a strong enough counter-offensive to sustain a reversal of IEBC's declaration. After all domestic and prominent domestic and international observers applauded the Independent Electoral 7 Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for conducting a fair, free and peaceful elections; clearly they didn't want to be seen to tip the outcome one way or the other and were eager to conclude the elections as quickly as possible, it appears that their overarching goal was peace even if the process itself wasn't  necessarily credible and trampled on the very democracy they were supposedly guarding i.e. an outcome that represented the people's will.

Mama lishe hana risiti, kinyozi hana risiti, wafanyabiashara sokoni hawana risiti, na makundi mengine mengi hawana risiti. Mwanzoni wafanyabiashara waligomea machine za EFD wakidhani kodi inatozwa kwenye mauzo hapana kodi inatozwa katika faida baada ya kutonga ghara zako za manunuzi. 

Sasa tumeelewa ili kuweka kumbukumbu sahihi za biashara, ni kutunza risiti za manunuzi na EFD inakutunzia kumbukumbu za mauzo. hapo kodi halisi inapatikana. TATIZO MAWAKALA WA EFD WANATUUMIZA EFD BEI YAKE NI KUBWA MMNO TSHS.850,000/=.

Kwa nini TRA msianze kutoa TIN number katika chip kama za simu (sim card) ili wauzaji wa EFD machine wawe wengi tuzinunue na kuweka hiyo line yako ya TIN na kuanza kuchapa kazi? mkifanya hivyo hata kinyozi atakuwa na EFD na zitapatikana katika maeneo yetu kama zilivyo simu za mikononi.

Tumuunge mkono rais wetu na tanzania ina wataalamu wa fani hiyo vijana wengi kama wale wa maximalipo na wengine!

TRA mpooooooo
