The Constitution of Kenya 2010 is imbedded with provisions seeking to entrench Integrity
as a way of governance
in Kenya's public sector and private interactions. These provisions range from a
recognition under the Preamble,
"...for a government based on the essential values of human rights, equality, freedom,
democracy, social justice
and the rule of law." The Constitution goes further to make provisions on the National
values and principles of
governance under Article 10 and more explicitly Chapter Six on Leadership and Integrity.
These values and principles
that promote the entrenchment of Integrity are rooted in the entire Constitution under
the Bill of Rights, Land
and Environment, Representation of the People, Devolved Government, Public Finance and
Public Service provisions.
To promote the continued application and implementation of Integrity as envisaged under
Transparency International Kenya (TI-Kenya) seeks to award Acts of Integrity and
recognize People who made a significant
contribution towards realizing these actions. The Integrity Award consists of an Award
participation in a public award ceremony during the celebrations of International
Anti-Corruption Day to take place on
the 9th of December 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya. TI-Kenya's has thus developed categories
based the organization's work as
