A clip has been doing rounds on social media since Monday. A Kenyan woman who is a university graduate expressed her distrust in the President and the government.
In the video, the young woman explains how she thought of starting her company limited by guarantee.
As a young person, I decided to be proactive in creating employment for myself as the government demands. She says.
The young woman goes ahead to explain how she began the process of registration and the charges were three thousand Kenyan shillings. She thought that would be manageable as she would borrow from friends.
However, she was later asked to pay an extra charge of seven thousand shillings.
In reiteration, the Business Registration Service started that the change in fee was configured late to the e-citizen platform. Thus leading to confusion. In a statement signed by Director General Kenneth Gathuma, BRS stated this:
The fee adjustment for a Company Limited by guarantee is ten thousand shillings. This is by the Companies Act that revised the fee from three thousand to ten thousand in 2017.
The statement went ahead to note that the necessary changes were made on 8th Feb 2021 to rectify the mistake.
The organization also claimed that the process has no desire to suppress the dreams of Kenyan youths.
