A bid by public institution’s to vet and clear candidates seeking various political post on integrity issues has been challenged in the high court.

Mr Omtatah wants the high court to quash the requirement by the respondents that the persons seeking to vie at elections to public office be cleared by the working group.
He further want respondents prohibited from proceeding to demand that the the persons wishing to vie at the general elections to public comply with the illegal and unconstitutional requirements that candidates comply with chapter six.
“The documents l titled :-Resolutions on Compliance with Framework of Collaboration by the Agencies to ensure Compliance with Leadership and integrity Requirements in the August 2017 General Elections”
Okiya Omtatah argues that Chapter six can only be implemented by the courts and not any other body.
He claims that Private entities like Credit Information Sharing Association Of Kenya have no business vetting candidates for election to public office.
“The respondents have violated article 38 (3)(c) of the constitution of Kenya by imposing unreasonable restrictions on Citizens wishing to vie at the 8th August 2017 general elections, ”Omtatah argues.
