Kenyans have been told to reject all the leaders who are facing corruption related cases and other cases in court. This is after a lobby group said that around 25 politicians should be blocked from the August 9 General Elections. Among the big names is Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua who is also the DP Ruto's running mate.
Some other politicians include Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru, Oscar Sudi, Kembi Gitura, Mike Sonko, Aisha Jumwa, Evans Kidero, Okoth Obado, John Waluke, Linturi among many other aspirants who have been red-carded by the National Integrity Alliance as a result of corruption related crimes and other criminal cases they are facing in court. It further emerges that EACC and DCI are expected to take action against these leaders due to the court cases they are facing.
However the lobby group has said that they will initiate a new online petition next week through the change.org where they will ask Kenyans to sign the petition. The lobby group further said that they would then present the online petition together with the list of Red Carded politicians to the IEBC and EACC expecting action to be taken.
The lobby group also want Kenyans to avoiding supporting all the politicians who are facing cases in court.
“In case these corrupt and unethical political aspirants sieve through the vetting institutions, we call on voters to reject them at the ballot,” the lobby group said.
