True the rate cap has helped us against the greedy loan shark banks, and I'm sure it wount go through parliament.

The problem is according to the judgement around February, where a judge actually called it unconstitutional and illegal, and gave parliament a year to correct the law otherwise it would be repealed without any further court appearance(i.e returns to its original state). My issue is we have forgotten about that ruling and our chicken memory governors and mp's will not remember to do anything about the law. I can bet you nnext year the interest rates will most likely increase, and we shall have no one to blame but ourselves for not following up on the ruling.

Hence the proposal by Henry Rotich.


Last 2 years budgets there have been similar proposals, this time its there to close our eyes and forget the judgement deadline.


MPs are negotiating that for the law to be repealed anyone who took a loan before should continue at the same interest rates.
New applicants are the ones to be subjected to the new rates.

Eating their cake and having it! (And yes, I said it right!)

When the rates were introduced, they insisted that even old loans be switched to the new regime (which is illegal if you think about it given that there were existing contracts).

Now they want to ignore the reasoning they used then!!??

Repeal of interest cap law is a progressive proposal. However, its passage must exempt application of new interest rates on existing loan portfolio which should be considered permanently less risky

I reiterate that this is a Uhuru Kenyatta sponsored bill tabled in parliament by his proxy Jude Njomo. The rate cap is not going anywhere unless Uhuru Kenyatta leaves state house. Rotich should stop lying to Kenyans that he is making efforts towards a different outcome.

Commercial banks will not adjust the interest rates on loans already taken after the law capping interest rates is repealed.

In the biggest concession yet to Parliament in a bid to scrap the interest rate capping law, lenders, through the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA), the sector lobby group, offered not to increase interest rates on current loans, as has been the practice in the past.

Instead, only new borrowers will pay the new rates in line with their risk profile.

“Banks are committed to maintaining the current customers’ loan contracts within the existing contractual framework,” the memorandum signed by KBA Chief Executive Officer Habil Olaka says.

The memorandum has been sent to Parliament as part of the submissions for the finance bill, through which the National Treasury seeks to do away with the interest rate capping law.

“It is only new loan contracts that will be risk-prized post the repeal of the interest rate capping law,” Mr Olaka added.

A parliamentary committee has opposed a proposal by National Treasury to have the interest rate capping law repealed saying it will subject Kenyans to expensive credit at the expense of commercial banks, a majority of them multinationals.

The proposal to amend section 33 (b) of the Banking Act, is contained in the Finance Bill 2019, currently before the National Assembly.

........................
GIVE CREDIT

“I disagree with you. The banks decide who to give credit to. The removal of interest caps will only benefit few shareholders and encourage capital flight,” Mr Atandi said.

Mr Atandi wondered why Treasury was so keen on the matter and whether it is “speaking for the banks that failed to convince us to have the caps removed.”

At some point, Mr Atandi advised the government to stop borrowing from local banks saying it has made the cost of credit so high to the SMES.

GIVE CREDIT

“I disagree with you. The banks decide who to give credit to. The removal of interest caps will only benefit few shareholders and encourage capital flight,” Mr Atandi said.

Mr Atandi wondered why Treasury was so keen on the matter and whether it is “speaking for the banks that failed to convince us to have the caps removed.”

At some point, Mr Atandi advised the government to stop borrowing from local banks saying it has made the cost of credit so high to the SMES.


For once MPigs are thinking right.


yaaaaaawn...wharever. We accepted and moved on. They repeal, they don't who cares. You can't buck the markets
