Ever since the legitimization of the electronic transaction levy, there have been numerous opposition to the initiative in view of the massive upswings in charges pertaining to mobile money transfers.
As a result of the rising cost of living in the country, citizens have devised new strategies to stay away from being levied. One way these citizens have adapted to is keeping their money on them to avoid transferring them to attract charges.
Their actions came on the back of the government’s decision to raise revenue from mobile money transfers through e-levy in order to support the economy.
Looking at the way prices of commodities have risen to its core in recent years, escaping e-levy charges on mobile money transfers seem to be one of the most strategies citizens are taking to keep up with situations.
