Civil society activists have blacklisted 20 politicians they say should not be allowed to contest in the upcoming elections over integrity issues.
The Kenya Integrity Alliance on Wednesday said the politicians should be barred fro vying for elective posts. According to the activists group, the politicians have unanswered questions on corruption and unethical conduct.
They presented the list to IEBC today morning.
“The list was informed by reports from credible institutions and we have looked at the cases that are active in court,” said their leader Samuel Kimeu.
The list was jointly prepared by Transparency International, the Society for International Development, Mzalendo Trust and Inuka Trust.
The organisations say the list is not complete and more names could be added.
Samuel also said they were also guided by chapter 6 of the constitution.
