Kenyans cautioned against politicization of lifestyle audit


Kenyans have been cautioned against politicization of the proposed lifestyle audit for civil servants.

The proposed lifestyle audit appears to have ignited some disquiet within some political quarters.

A section of leaders allege that the proposal is a tool for political witch hunt.

However, some leaders led West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo have termed the allegations baseless, instead calling on Kenyans to embrace the planned audit.

The leaders said they fully support the government in its fight against corruption.

Meanwhile, questions over the contents of contraband sugar nabbed in the country continued to dominate political headlines with a section of political leaders faulting a probe by a parliamentary committee.

On Thursday, lawmakers lambasted the Joint Parliamentary Committee investigating the matter for failing to name persons behind the illegal business.

In Baringo, Mogotio Mp Daniel Tuitoek found himself in a tight corner as he attempted to defend the efforts of the committee.

Elesewhere, former central Imenti MP Gitobu Imanyara has been honored for his role in Kenya’s 2nd liberation.

Imanyara was on numerous occasions detained in the 90’s for taking part in what the then government considered unlawful dissent.

In Kisii, Woman Representative Janet Ong’era has accused the County Assembly of passing oppressive legislations aimed at gagging female lawmakers.

While drawing reference to a recent ruling that barred nominated MCAs from taking part in the budget making process, Ong’era challenged the County Assembly to rise above stereotype and involve women in development.
