Elected leaders to sign and commit to integrity codes

Newly elected, nominated leaders and appointed State officers will be required to sign and commit to integrity codes in addition to their oaths of office.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) says the exercise is pursuant to Section 40 of the Leadership and Integrity Act, 2012.

“Signing of the prescribed integrity code signifies a commitment and pledge by the State Officer that during their tenure of office, they will uphold Integrity, protect public trust and not promote or engage in any form of corruption,” the commission said.

EACC is now liaising with the Office of Chief Justice Martha Koome and other relevant offices/committees in the swearing-in process to have the new State Officers commit to the integrity code at the time of taking their respective oaths of office.
