Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential running mate Rigathi Gachagua and Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili alias Babu Owino are among 25 politicians who might be blocked from running for office in the upcoming general elections.

The National Integrity Alliance released the names on Sunday, May 22 and forwarded the list to the IEBC for action.

Former Nairobi Governors Mike Sonko and Evans Kidero, Kiringaga Governor Ann Waiguru, Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, and others are among the other prominent politicians whose character has been deemed doubtful by the alliance.

The alliance disclosed that it has been closely observing the seven and others and that they are required to enforce Chapter 6 of the Constitution, which addresses leadership and honesty.

“Already different political factions have nominated candidates to compete in various political seats in the August general elections. However, it is unfortunate that some of these aspirants have questionable characters and tainted integrity,” NIA said in a statement.
