Bad news to former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu over his intention to run for the Nairobi Gubernatorial seat as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission fires another warning.

EACC chairman Twalib Mbarak has in a Wednesday evening interview with NTV informed that they will not allow any governor or leader who was earlier caught in the graft to contest in any seat saying that it violates their law.

On the Issue of Ex-Governor Waititu's move to run for the Nairobi Governors seat in the upcoming by-election, Twalib Mbarak has informed that incase Waititu will be cleared, then they will be forced to go to the court to ensure that they stop such a move.

The EACC chair has revealed that the Independent Electoral And Boundaries Commission are aware that they should not clear him.

"We have already written to the IEBC and told them that those leaders who have been caught in graft cases should not be allowed to view. As the EACC we have said they should not be issued with the clearance certificates," Twalib has said.

"If Waititu will get a clearance, then as the EACC we shall be forced to go to the court," The EACC chair has added.

Twalib has also stated that in case the court will not help them in any way, then, they will be forced to use the Parliament Justice and Legal Committee too to ensure the leader is stopped.

"If the Court will not help us find our justice then we shall deal it out with the Parliament Justice and Legal Committee[JLC] to ensure the law is followed," Twalib has posed.

Here is the Interview.
