BUSIA MCAs on Wednesday refuted claims that the county government will tax churches. The county government has come under focus over its plans to introduce various taxes to raise revenue. Religious leaders on Friday said the county government is planning to charge Sh1,000 per sermon, Sh 10,000 for big crusades, Sh5,000 for smaller crusades and Sh2,000 for preaching in tents. The MCAs said church sermons or viewing of bodies will not be taxed. Addressing the press in Busia yesterday, the MCAs accused the clergy of lying. They said lies might incite the residents against the county government.
