NAIROBI, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Kenya’s president Uhuru Kenyatta has returned to parliament a finance bill which sought to suspend a widely unpopular 16 percent value added tax on fuel, an official notice showed on Thursday.
Parliament will hold a special sitting on the bill on Sept. 18.
Officials at parliament and at the president’s office confirmed the gazette notice summoning parliament from a month long recess.
Kenyatta’s office said he would address the country on Friday. (Reporting by Duncan Miriri and Humphrey Malalo Editing by Ingrid Melander)
