Implementation of Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya 2010

The Constitution of Kenya, 2010 provides, under Chapter 6, for leadership and integrity of all public officers. The Chapter is predicated upon the assumption that State officers1 are the nerve Centre of the Republic and carry the highest level of responsibility in the management of state affairs and, therefore, their conduct should be beyond reproach.
