Murkomen calls for lifestyle audit of public servants

Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen has now called for lifestyle audit of public servants and state officers.

According to the CS, the audit will put to rest concerns raised by Kenyans that some public servants and state officers are living beyond their means.

The CS continued by saying that a Lifestyle Audit Bill should be tabled before parliament so as to kick off the exercise.

“Why don’t we pass a law in Kenya for lifestyle audits? So that every year after office, we can do a lifestyle audit of every person who is holding public office so that people can’t just look at CS Murkomen alone to see how much I have dressed.” said Murkomen

“In line with the current National Conversation and to address the concerns that state and public officers are living beyond their means, I propose that Parliament urgently introduces and passes Lifestyle Audit Bill to provide the parameters of auditing the state and public officers and to investigate their living standards to ascertain consistency with their lawful income.

The Bill should among others set the maximum cost of personal wear/outfits, cars etc . I Submit.” he said

Murkomen also highlighted the need of the country to know the status of the country and the infrastructure it holds especially under his ministry.

“I’m ready to account for every second that I go to my office at 6am and leave at 10pm. I’m ready to give an account of what the government has done in the last two years in my ministry and it should be the tradition,” he said
