In a surprising turn of events, the popular news outlet Kenyans.co.ke has deleted a blog post that claimed President William Ruto’s administration was planning to integrate Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) systems with Safaricom’s M-PESA accounts. The integration aimed to enhance tax compliance and increase revenue collection over the next decade.

The now-deleted article suggested that the move would not only target tax evasion but also support the government’s Affordable Housing Levy initiative. This would allow employed Kenyans receiving their salary via M-PESA to contribute to national development efforts.

However, visitors to the site were met with a 404 error when attempting to access the story, sparking speculation and confusion over the sudden disappearance of the post.

The retraction has raised questions about the veracity of the initial report and the reasons behind its removal. Discussions are ongoing, with citizens and experts alike weighing in on the implications of such a policy, should it come to fruition.
