Kenyans will not be able to access information on the wealth of public senior officials as barred by the new las ammendments.
Nominated senator Farhiya Ali Haji wants the house to do away with clause 25 that sought to remove restrictions on Kenyans seeking to get information on the wealth of top public officials such as the president and the deputy president.
The clause required that the public official’s wealth be available to the people through the website or in an unrestricted database hosted by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC).
This has been the second attempt to remove the restrictions that is barring Kenyans from having access to the wealth of people holding senior positions in public offices.
Currently, public officers declare their wealth every two years though the information remains confidential.
