A report that appeared in the Business Daily on Friday though observed that her net worth pales in comparison to individuals recently vetted for top State jobs with majority having assets in excess of Sh. 150 million. “Former Cabinet minister Esther Murugi Mathenge said she was worth Sh. 320 million while seeking to join the National Land Commission (NLC) while lawyer Gershom Otachi quoted properties of Sh. 200 million while seeking the same job” the report said.

The full financial disclosure is a means to allow the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to detect and prevent corruption when top public servants are serving in office” the report added.
