Game Over For Corrupt Kenyan Politicians As The EACC Make This Stunning Move

The Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission are advocating for a new law that will prevent all corrupt leaders in the country from holding public office or contesting for any political position ,as they further argue that the current stance of "innocent until proven guilty" is proving ineffective against the fight for corruption in the country.

The development is in the wake of many political leaders seeking different political positions even though they are still battling cases in courts that relate to corruption or abuse of office.

Former and current governors like Mike Sonko, Ferdinand Waititu, Okoth Obado and Moses Lenolkulal could be some of the politicians who may be locked out should the new law come effect as it could see current leaders resign from their positions and those who have aspirations be forced to forfeit them.

EAaC boss Twalib Mbarek lamented that neither the IEBC nor the EACC could be blamed for leaders with questionable leaders walking scott free but it was a high time measures were taken to bar them from contesting or occupying public office.

"We are saying there is a problem. It is not IEBC to be blamed nor is it EACC. If you stop them, they’ll go to court, if they go to court, their lawyers will invoke those two articles," the EACC CEO added.
