Ann Nderitu, the incoming Registrar of Political Parties, has put her wealth at Sh56.4 million.

Ms Nderitu was approved by the whole House for appointment on Thursday evening but did not disclose the sources of her wealth.

“She stated that her net worth was Sh56.4 million after considering liabilities such as personal debts, loans and mortgages,” the Justice and Legal Affairs committee said in report on her vetting.

The Public Officer Ethics Act require everyone joining the public service to make wealth declarations within 30 days of assuming State or public office.

Wealth declaration forms are important tools that the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) uses to detect corruption by individual public officers. The EACC monitors the declaration of income, assets and liabilities of the State or public officers.

The Justice and Legal Affairs committee vetted Ms Nderitu alongside Ali Abdullahi Surraw, Ms Florence Tabu Birya and Mr Makorre Wilson Mohochi for appointment for the position of assistant Registrar of Political parties.

The committee, however, rejected the nomination of Makore Wilson on grounds that he does not meet the statutory requirement of 10 years post qualification experience needed for appointment.
