WORKSHOP ON IMPLEMENTATION OF CHAPTER SIX OF THE CONSTITUTION FOR RESPONSIBLE COMMISSIONS AND INDEPE

A workshop on implementation of Chapter Six of The Constitution for Responsible Commissions and Independent Offices was held on 22nd November, 2016 at The Kenya School of Monetary Studies. The workshop was officially opened by the Ethics and Anti- Corruption Commissions (EACC) Vice-Chair Sophia Lepuchirit, the CEO Mr. Halakhe Waqo and the office of The Attorney General.

The purpose of the workshop was to equip them with the requisite knowledge and skills to perform their roles of monitoring the ethical standards of public officers within their jurisdiction and also take administrative action against officers who breach the set ethical standards.

The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission is mandated to enforce various laws on ethics, integrity and anti- corruption in the country. Amongst them is the Leadership and Integrity Act (LIA), 2012. This Act was enacted to provide procedures and mechanisms for implementation of Chapter Six of the Constitution on leadership and integrity.

Chapter Six of the Constitution and its enabling laws and regulations apply to all state officers and public officers. These laws set the minimum standards of conduct and performance expected of people holding public office. The law has designated specific entities, called Responsible Commissions, to develop and implement codes of conduct and ethics for public officers as a way of implementing these integrity laws. For instance, the Teachers Service Commission is the Responsible Commission for all teachers in Kenya. The Public Service Commission is responsible for public officers in Government Ministries, Departments and Parastatals.
