KPLC targets its employees and their families in new lifestyle audit


The Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) will, beginning Monday, conduct a lifestyle audit of all its employees to root out rogue staff members who may be siphoning money from the electricity distributor.

Through a memo to all its employees, all Kenya Power staff will submit personal details, including information about their assets and property, to a special committee, KPLC Vetting Team, for scrutiny.

The vetting committee will look into the lifestyles and wealth of the employees and their families to determine their legitimacy.

On Thursday, General Manager HR and Administration notified the company’s over ten thousand employees to urgently provide the information by close of business, Monday, 22nd November 2021.

Among the information sought by the team, is a list of known companies and businesses owned or controlled by the employee or immediate family members that have had commercial dealings with KPLC.

Stocks, shares, and partnerships including investment groups of which the staff and their spouses are members.

The staff will also enclose copies of their bank statements and those of their spouse for the last six months including foreign accounts, and certified copies of mobile money statements for the last six months.

They will give their Kenya Revenue Authority Income Tax Returns and their companies or businesses for the last three years, club membership, and social media accounts.

The Vetting Team also requires the staff to give full names and ID numbers of immediate family members (spouse, children, dependents, parents, and siblings), business associates, agents, or associations where the officer has a direct and indirect financial or non-financial interest.

The lifestyle audit comes after an investigation into the Company’s finances revealed that some fraudsters are colluding with internal staff to target and con unsuspecting customers.
