Something Kenya needs

Once a year, we fill out wealth declaration and income tax forms and dutifully submit them to the Kenya Revenue Authority. We are yet to get any feedback from the wealth declaration exercise that is now two years old. I hate to keep hammering the government for yet another broken promise, but I wish they’d take a cue from the American Supreme Court and publicize gift and wealth declarations of senior public officers. While it’s embarrassing to see that someone received gifts of cowboy boots, batteries, blankets, and car tires, this is one way of checking corruption.
