Opposition leader Raila Odinga has said he is ready for a lifestyle audit, days after President Uhuru Kenyatta declared that state officials must undergo the same.
Speaking on Tuesday, Raila noted that audits are good for his ODM party and Kenya.
Uhuru ordered the National Intelligence Service to audit public servants, including him and Deputy President William Ruto. He said all state officers will be asked to explain the sources of their wealth and that all those found to have plundered public coffers will be punished.
Raila asked the government to hire international audit firms and experts to boost the war on graft. ODM is apprehensive that local authorities might be compromised. He also noted that a foreign firm helped unearth the Anglo Leasing scam.
The ODM boss, however, touched on the elections, noting the meeting came after they campaigned but refused to take part in the repeat presidential poll that the Supreme Court ordered.
"[IEBC] had refused to level the playing field and deal with irregularities and illegalities pointed out by the Supreme Court. The servers were open ... we saw the result of the the elections," he said.
