This declaration is made online and there are hefty penalties for officers who fail to declare their income, assets and liabilities within the stipulated time. According to the Public Ethics Act of 2003, It is mandatory for all public officers to declare their income, assets and liabilities once in every two years. Under this act, a public officer who provides incomplete and inaccurate information is liable for a fine of one Million Kenya shillings or imprisonment for a period of one year or both.
