As the electioneering period is drawing close, the aspirants for various elective positions are expected to disclose their financial status and be in the better position to account for the ways how they accumulated such wealth. The Ethics and Anti Corruption Committee EACC is required to clear everyone for eligibility to occupy a public office.
However, some leaders in Kenya have amassed wealth that even themselves are not aware how they acquired. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC should bar anyone with any corruption case against vying for electoral position.
For the reason clearly not known, some have hidden bank accounts in foreign countries. The COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has categorically stated the source of wealth as purely the salary he earns monthly. To remove any doubt, he has said he banks in ABSA and NBK.
This is a good example to all the leaders with transparency and integrity. It's every Kenyan wish that all leaders disclose their financial status.
