Mutua calls in EACC to audit lifestyle of all county workers

Machakos County Governor Alfred Mutua has declared war on graft in his county by inviting the anti-corruption commission to conduct a lifestyle audit on all county government staff.

“The fight against corruption must be accompanied by accountability that starts from the very top,” the Governor said in a statement on his Facebook account.

“I have volunteered information of my wealth, my assets and bank account details, to the responsible commission for use in a lifestyle audit.

“I have volunteered this information because I want to lead from the front and to show that in my time as Governor, I have not acquired any new, unexplained wealth. I have, as expected, been a protector of tax payers money and have lived within my means, ” said Governor Mutua.

The Governor also announced the creation an anti-corruption and evaluation unit in his office and the appointment of Mr Hyslop Ipu as his anti-corruption and ethics advisor.

Mr Ipu is a former comptroller of State House, Cabinet office’s Principal Administration Secretary and Permanent Secretary in several ministries.
