Members of Uasin Gishu County Assembly have been asked to declare their wealth.

In a letter signed by the county assembly clerk Richard Chepkonga dated 13th July 2017, the Ward Reps are required to collect declaration forms from the office of the Speaker’s secretary.

The County Assembly clerk noted that the move was in line with Section 26 of the Public Officer Ethics Act 2003 and Section 11(3) of the Uasin Gishu County Assembly leadership and integrity code.

“All state officers shall submit an initial declaration of income,assets and liabilities within 30 days of assuming office and thereafter bianually and a final declaration 30 days after ceasing to be a state officer,” the county assembly clerk pointed out in his letter.

This comes at a time when there has been a public outcry that the rate at which some elected leaders across the country are accumulating wealth has not been commensurate with their salaries and allowances.

The declaration of their wealth will assist the public to know the baseline for the MCAs wealth and can be used to audit them.
