National Integrity Alliance wants 20 Kenyans not to be on the ballot

The National Integrity Alliance has moved to court to bar 20 Kenyans who are vying for various elective posts from doing so.

Big names include Hassan Joho, Alfred Keter, Ann Waiguru, Alfred Mutua, Ferdinand Waititu and Cyprian Awiti among others.

The 20 Kenyans have been barred from running for political office due to integrity issues as per chapter six of the constitution.

The move by the National Integrity Alliance comes just a day after Transparency International released a list of candidates vying for various posts in the 2017 ballot as unfit to hold public office.

The agency gave reasons to each candidate’s name who they thought should not vie for elective posts citing instances of violence, unethical behaviour and misuse of public funds and resources.

Other names include Asman Kamama and Elizabeth Ongoro.
