The EACC Chairperson, Archbishop (Rtd) Eliud Wabukala addressing the participants

All the speakers emphasized the need for a peaceful and credible election.

The EACC Chairperson, Archbishop (Rtd) Eliud Wabukala while addressing the participants during the opening of the conference on June 13th 2017, said that leadership is a great calling and a public trust which necessitates adherence to the highest standards of integrity.

Archbishop Wabukala added that there is no better time than during a general election when Kenyans have an opportunity to apply the integrity test to elect persons who will serve them in public office through a democratic process.

Kenyans have a significant opportunity to determine how they want to be governed bearing in mind that some of the challenges we experience today including corruption, are caused by those among us who lack personal integrity, said the EACC Chairperson.

 

He called upon civil society, religious sector, media and other stakeholders to remain vigilant and committed to playing their respective roles in the pursuit of free and fair elections.

The participants including dignitaries had a chance to sign their election pledges towards credible and peaceful elections. Former Prime Minister Right Honourable Raila Odinga who attended the opening ceremony also signed the peace pledge.
