Integrity Walk | 28th Sep, 2019 - Freedom Corner

Integrity Champion Nomination

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 the Constitution, 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 Certificate/Trophy and 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.
