National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi has advocated a mandatory lifestyle audit of all Kenyan leaders and public officials.

The presidential hopeful said he supports a lifestyle on Thursday during a live engagement with his Twitter followers.

Speaker Muturi was responding to a Twitter user who asked how much he is worth.

“How much is your net worth and how did you acquire your wealth? #ChatWithJBMuturi,” tweeted Enock Kiptanui.

The Speaker said he is worth Sh 300 million, which he acquired through loans and public service.

“I am worth Approx.Ksh.300M most of my property was acquired through bank loans and civil servant remuneration for 36 years,” Muturi said.

“I support a lifestyle audit on all leaders plus an explanation of how all their wealth was acquired and this should not be done in secret,” he added.

About a month ago, the Senate unanimously approved The Lifestyle Audit Bill, 2021, requiring public officials to undergo a mandatory lifestyle audit.

The bill, sponsored by Nominated Senator Farhiya Ali, now awaits the endorsement of the National Assembly before it’s presented to the President for assent.
