Presidential aspirants and their running mates may miss out on their coveted positions if they are found to have previously broken the law, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has said. Candidates who are found to have been convicted of corruption offences and abuse of office or are subject of criminal and disciplinary proceedings would be barred from running for electoral positions. According to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Vice-Chairperson Irene Keino, those who fail to submit the forms could be locked out from vying for their desired seats.
