Kipchumba Murkomen reveals what he fears about president Kenyatta's lifestyle audit directive

The audit is aimed at exposing those who have profited from the proceeds of corruption

Murkomen disclosed that the audit would expose the fake lifestyles of many politicians perceived to be living a flamboyant life of the rich yet are poor.

Taking to Twitter, the Senator noted that it would see politicians “lose” some of their assets such as helicopters, high rise buildings and NYS tenders and as a result attract hatred from Kenyan voters who hate poor politicians.

The lifestyle is aimed at exposing those who have profited from the proceeds of corruption, with some state officials and politicians on a spending spree and living beyond their means.

State officials have been thrown into a panic following ne directives given by President Uhuru Kenyatta in the fight against graft including the decision to send all accounting and procurement heads on suspension and the introduction of lie detector tests as well as lifestyle audit.

Not knowing who or what will be next, state officers are reportedly in a rush to put their houses in order in the wake of unprecedented corruption scandals.
