The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has drawn the attention of local councils to the local Government Act requiring every councilor to declare their assets. In a public notice issued by the ACC, it stated that the ACC has prepared the relevant asset declaration forms which have to be completed by the councilors not later than thirty days after assuming office. It drew the councilors attention to section 103 and 104 of the local Government Act No 1 which provides that every councilor, appointed or assigned member of staff of a local council shall be subject to the Anti- Corruption Act. Section 104 provides that every councilor, appointed or assigned member of each local council shall, not later than thirty days after assuming or leaving office make a declaration of assets in such form as the Anti- Corruption Commission may determine. The notice further revealed that the original and other copies of the declaration shall in the case of councilors be submitted to the Ministry and the Anti- Corruption Commission respectively and in the case of appointed staff be submitted to the commission and the Anti- Corruption respectively and in case of assigned staff be submitted to the public service commission and the Anti- Corruption Commission respectively. Observers though, have said the declaration of assets by the councilors will not create any impact more so when the chief executive and other top Government functionaries have still not declared their assets. But others say, declaring of assets from the local strata was a beginning and a welcome idea.
