William Ruto And President Uhuru Kenyatta On The Spotlight As MPs Want This Publicized

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will b among the high profile politicians under scrutiny as members of Parliament push on scrapping section 30 of the Public Officer Ethics Act 2003 that protects civil servants wealth from public scrutiny.

The members of Parliament want the Lifestyle Audit Bill 2021 amended and this would allow Kenyans to have access to the wealth information of all political servants in the country including the president and his deputy.

Should this be enacted, an individual's net worth which accounts for one's assets, liabilities and income will be published through self-declared wealth forms on the EACC website.

"Lifestyle audit may be carried out on the immediate family of a public or a State officer if it is established that a property in question is owned by the public or State officer or members of their immediate family, including joint ownership," the Bill dictates.

One risks a two-year jail term or a fine of Ksh 5 million should they be found guilty of providing false information as the state makes this move in curbing corruption a message that has been clear in President Uhuru's final term.
