    Most leaders submit wealth declaration forms-source

    Most ministers, deputies and Members of Parliament have beaten the December 31 deadline for the submission of wealth –declaration forms to the Ethics Secretariat, The Guardian has learnt.
    Throughout this week, this reporter observed government and other national leaders including ministers, legislators, district and regional commissioners, getting in and out of the Ethics Secretariat offices picking and returning the declaration forms, as required by the law.
    The activity gathered steam only two days before the deadline with several government leaders spotted picking, filling and retuning the forms.
    A reliable source at the Ethics Secretariat told The Guardian in an exclusive interview that there was change in the response of the leaders to the legal requirement.
    The source said that this year, many leaders have tried to meet the deadline unlike previous years when it was not respected.
    "In the past years, national leaders had been reluctant to fill the forms, but this time around, the situation has improved," he said.
    Sources at the Secretariat added: "It is an offence for any leader to fail to fill the forms, because the law requires them to do so every year."
    In the declaration forms, he said leaders -- ministers, permanent secretaries, members of parliament, regional and districts commissioners, and other senior government officials, were obliged to put down the value of their wealth every year of their leadership tenure.
    Recently, the Minister for State in the President Office and Good Governance, Mathias Chikawe declined to comment on the steps that would be taken against leaders who would not fill the forms or miss the December 31 deadline.
    The Director of Advocacy and Reforms from the Legal and Human Right Centre (LHRC), Harold Sungusia criticised the ethics laws as useless because of its poor enforcement.
    He said the Ethics Secretariat and related organs were wasting public funds.
    "You can't have a law restricting leaders to accumulate wealth while the capitalist system allows everybody to generate income through various legal channels," said Sungusia.
    He said since the demise of the Arusha Declaration, the concept of ethics amongst leaders has disappeared.They have freedom to do anything they want; some are involved in corrupt and dirty means to acquire wealth.
    Sungusia said since wealth-declaration forms were secret, it was difficult to know if leaders had filled the actual value of their wealth.
    When asked to mention total number of leaders prosecuted for failure to fill the forms, the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB) Public Relations Officer, Doreen Kapwani said: "It is difficult for me to answer that question because I am out of the office. The entire office is now on end of year holidays," said Kapwani.
    The new Ethics Secretariat Commissioner is Judge Salome Kaganda appointed by President Kikwete last month.

    Submission of forms is one thing, making use of those forms to curb mis-use of public office for personal aggradisement is quite another.
