A few days after President Kenyatta announced his latest salvo in the war on corruption, Safaricom CEO, Bob Collymore said that he, and other leaders, would soon declare their wealth in support of this – to show the way of embracing the lifestyle audit aspect of fighting corruption.
This has now been released on World Anti-Corruption Day. The statement shows assets of $2.7 million (~ Kshs 275 million) comprising mainly property, cash, and shares in Vodafone and Safaricom which he leads, and from which he earned $1.06 million last year as salary, and probably with bonuses included.
ION, a few years ago, some members of parliament, made wealth declarations as well.
