“Ukikosa kulipa ile unatakiwa kulipa, lazima vitu vyako vitachukuliwa na kuuzwa.

“Mtu ashtakiwe alipe ile kitu anatakiwa kulipa. Na kama ni mimi, ata nikiwa na mwaka mmoja nimekosea bila kulipa, mali ichukuliwe ilipe ile tax. Kwa hivyo hakuna haja ya kufanya siasa hivi na vile...na watu wanajua hawasemi ukweli, wanataka tu kusema ndio wasikike eti wanataja majina. (Let those who have not paid taxes be prosecuted. If I have failed to pay taxes for one year, sell my property to offset the tax arrears, there is no need to politicise tax issues.”
