Amani National Congress leader Musalia Mudavadi has challenged the Kenya Revenue Authority to conduct lifestyle audits on politicians donating huge amounts of cash to churches.
The Nasa coprincipal wants KRA to establish the source of the money and if the people involved are meeting their tax obligations.
Speaking on Sunday when he attended a service at Ruaka PCEA, Kiambu county, Mudavadi noted the information acquired by the taxman would also help in the war on corruption as well as enhance the collection of taxes.
In what appeared to be a thinly veiled attack on DP Ruto, who has been donating huge sums in harambees, Mudavadi observed that some politicians have more money than some of the wealthiest corporates.
“We have people in the country who are donating more funds than Safaricom is giving through its foundation. If they don’t have a big company like Safaricom, it is clear that the source of money is questionable,” Mudavadi said.
The former Vice president further urged Kenyans to unite in the fight against corruption so that everyone can have access to good health, education, and infrastructure.
“We have seen a lot of development in the fight against corruption and we can win if the people embrace the opposition and work together to ensure good governance,” he said.
Mudavadi also called on churches to remain the moral compass of the society and urged the civil society to strengthen its activities.
