Nairobi - Politicians facing court cases got a reprieve Wednesday after the ethics and anti-corruption body said they would not be barred from running for office.
According to Daily Nation, Chapter Six of the Constitution requires that candidates running for public office should pass the integrity test and be above reproach to ensure only credible leaders are entrusted to manage public resources.
Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Eldoret North MP William Ruto are among leaders facing court cases, specifically one which questions their integrity to seek elective office.
