Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen admits he has a ‘problem’ with the impending lifestyle audit on all public servants.

The outspoken politician, who is a known close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, made his thoughts public via his Twitter page.

He explained the said audit, which has been ordered for by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s declaration, will ‘expose’ several politicians as poor.

“There is nothing a Kenyan voter hates than a poor politician. Just let us fake it till we get it,” Murkomen said.

“I have only one problem with lifestyle audit. It will expose some of us who are enjoying the perceived status of rich men. We will ‘lose’ our helicopters, high rise buildings, NYS tenders, etc,” he further explained.
