Here Is The Dateline For Civil Servants Eyeing 2022 Political Seats To Resign From Public Offices

A number of public servants are expected by the Independent Electral and Boundaries Commission to exit offices by February 9th 2021,if they intend to view for any political seat in the 2022 general election.

Fourteen days ago,IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati released the forthcoming general election timeline, requiring civil servants seeking any political possition to resign in February next year. This is according to the kenyan 2010 constitution,that requires that public officers seeking political seats to resign six months before a general election.

Bassed on the IEBC's Operation Plan, nominations for Presidential candidates will take place between May 30th and June 10th next year.

It is reported that some senior public servants have been sneaking in to counties for secret meetings while undermining the incumbents. Various ministries are therefore placing appropriate measures to ensure that those exiting office are placed under close supervision, just to avoid disrupting tender processes.

For example,from the Mt. Kenya region, Peter Munya, Sicil Kariuki and Chuka University Chancellor professor Erastus Njoka are among those thirsting for these political positions.
