NAIROBI Artemi Panarin Blue Jackets Jersey , Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, on Thursday waded into the row sparked by the country's government intention to tax sportsperson by calling on the State to shelve the move.
The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) chief who lost the March 2013 polls to President Uhuru Kenyatta, joined the chorus of condemnation of the measures announced Tuesday that has led to star athletes threatening to boycott the 2016 Olympics and 2015 World Championships in protest.
In a statement issued in Nairobi, Odinga called on authorities to address concerns raised by the sporting icons before implementing the measures that intend to tax all income made by sportspersons.
"We ask the government to shelve such plans until the fears and demands of these young men and women are convincingly and exhaustively addressed Seth Jones Blue Jackets Jersey ," Odinga said.
"Until the government demonstrates its investment in the emergence and growth of these athletes, soccer stars and other sports personalities, we oppose taxation of their earnings," he added.
The opposition leader took a swipe at the government for failing to contribute to the development of the very sportspersons they intend to tax especially, distance runners and a number of footballers plying their trade in Europe.
"Currently Sergei Bobrovsky Black Jersey , it is not clear what the government's contribution is to the emergence and growth of outstanding athletes like Asbel Kiprop, David Rudisha and Sylvia Kibet, among others."
"We challenge the government to explain to Kenyans what its contribution is to the football careers of Dennis Oliech, Victor Wanyama and MacDonald Mariga, just to name a few Artemi Panarin Black Jersey ," the Cord leader added.
His declaration supports that made by a number of top athletes in Eldoret on Wednesday under the aegis of the newly launched Professional Athletes Association of Kenya (PAAK) who called for the withdrawal of the proposal or they would consider boycotting major events.
"They are thriving on their God-given talents, which they nurture through discipline, hard work and heavy investment of their hard earned money in health and fitness," the opposition leader charged.
"Yet they plough their money back into our country. A number of towns in the Rift Valley including Eldoret, Kapsabet Seth Jones Black Jersey , Kericho and Iten are running on athletes' money through investments in property, for which the owners pay tax."
"This is in addition to the honor and fame the athletes bring to this country, for which we reward them with pretty little. Athletes and our soccer professionals are in a unique business," Odinga added.
The opposition boss called for the measures to be halted until proper structures to aid development of sportspersons are put in place.
"We therefore, urge that plans for taxation be put on hold until the government tables how it intends to ensure these athletes get into fair and rewarding deals with agents and that they are paid their dues promptly and adequately by the agents."
"Otherwise the tax demand is a case of the government repeating where it has not sown. We urge all Kenyans of goodwill to stand with our sportsmen and women in opposing these taxes until their fears and demands are addressed."
The latest storm was sparked on Tuesday when the Commissioner for Domestic Taxes at Kenya Revenue Authority Kids Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , the government's tax collector, published a communique requiring all sportsperson to pay dues on their earnings at home and overseas.

Athletics Kenya boss, Isaiah Kiplagat, said the measures were Kids Artemi Panarin Jersey , "nothing to worry about", since KRA has spelt out the modalities that earnings will be levied.
"We had KRA people at our seminar with athletes in December and they explained and answered all questions and there is no problem as portrayed in the media."
"I'm sure elite athletes have accountants and I do not think the issue should raise any problem. Athletes must understand and they were lectured on that," Kiplagat said Wednesday.
The CEO of the Kenyan Premier League, Jack Oguda, promised to ensure the 16 top-flight clubs in the domestic league abide by the regulations although he called on a transitional period to be offered by the government to align to the requirements.
"What we are planning to engage KRA and get more light into it because we had an issue where some clubs have not been taxing their players."
"It's something new and we will meet with relevant authorities to arrive to a conclusion Kids Seth Jones Jersey ," Oguda told.
