The activist is very regretful that some of the people who are seeking for position have been adversely mentioned in the theft of the government resources and therefore such people are to be barred in seeking any government position.

In his petition at the high court, he stated that the phrase of one is innocent until proven guilty should not apply in any way for the people who are seeking position to hold government offices.

If the petition goes by his wish, almost 16 people will have to drop their urge of being elected in the forth coming elections.

Some of the politicians who may be affected include, the current Migori govern Okoth Obada, Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru, Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong and others.

We therefore await the next step from the high court about the issue brought up by the human rights activist Okiyah Omtata.
