THE RED CARD CAMPAIGN
DISQUALIFY AND REJECT INDIVIDUALS WITH QUESTIONABLE INTEGRITY IN THE AUGUST 2022 POLLS
PRESS RELEASE AND METHODOLOGICAL NOTE
Sunday, 22nd May 2022, Nairobi
We,  Civil  Society  Organisations,  under  the  banner  of  the  National  Integrity  Alliance  (NIA)  have  been  closely monitoring key developments in regard to the enforcement of Chapter 6 of the Constitution on leadership and integrity. With the 9th August 2022 general elections drawing closer, we note that various political formations have nominated candidates to vie for elective seats, and various individuals have also presented themselves to contest
as independent candidates. Regrettably a number of these political aspirants have tainted integrity.
At stake in this year’s polls is the risk of electing to public office individuals who are in breach of the leadership and integrity tenets as enshrined in Chapter 6 of the Constitution of Kenya 2010, those named adversely by statutory agencies or prosecuted for corruption, economic crimes and abuse of office or other criminal offences. The cost of electing  such  leaders  is  borne  by  citizens  through  broken  promises  to  provide  effective  public  services,  like witnessed  recently when we  experienced  a surge  in  the cost  of  living  due to  rising  food  and  fuel prices  in  the country. Even worse, the country is losing a third of its budget annually to corruption and caving under a high level
of public debt.
The Red Card Campaign
To stop such individuals from ascending to public office and transforming the seeds of corruption into trunks of impunity, we have today launched the Red Card Campaign 2022. This is a continuation of the Red Card Campaign 2017 – a citizens’ driven campaign to rally public support against corrupt and unethical leadership, raise awareness and compel electoral vetting institutions to implement Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya on Leadership and
Integrity.
Updates on the 2017 Red Carded individuals
In 2017, we Red Carded 20 individuals that should not have been cleared to participate in the general elections on grounds of integrity and corruption. Some of those red carded, who were unfortunately elected such as, Ferdinand Waititu – former Kiambu County Governor, Mike Sonko – former Nairobi County Governor, Zakaria Okoth Obado – Migori County Governor and Anne Waiguru -Kirinyaga County Governor, were eventually impeached and others are in court following new corruption and criminal charges, while some are subjects of ongoing criminal investigations. These outcomes have lent
credence to our past efforts to block individuals unfit to hold public office.
Red Carded Individuals in 2022
The 25 individuals listed below have been Red Carded after an objective and impartial investigation, we hold that they are not fit to serve in any appointive or elective public office. Some of these individuals in Red Card 2022 were also Red Carded in 2017. The list is presented in alphabetical order and not in order of the severity of
offences or cases.
Aisha Jumwa – Malindi gubernatorial aspirant, Ali Korane – Garissa gubernatorial aspirant, Anne Waiguru
– Kirinyaga gubernatorial aspirant, Babu Owino- Embakasi East MP aspirant, Cleophas Malala -– Kakamega gubernatorial aspirant, Daniel Manduku – Nyaribari Masaba MP aspirant, Didmus Barasa – Kimilili MP aspirant, Evans Kidero – Homa Bay gubernatorial aspirant,  Fahim Twaha – Lamu gubernatorial aspirant, Godhana Dhadho Gaddae – Tana River gubernatorial aspirant, Johanna Ng’eno – Emurrua Dikir MP aspirant, John Walukhe – Sirisia MP aspirant, Joseph Samal – Isiolo North MP aspirant, Kembi Gitura- Muranga senatorial aspirant, Lilian Omollo – Embu senatorial aspirant, Mathew Lempurkel- Laikipia North MP aspirant, Mike Mbuvi Sonko – Mombasa gubernatorial aspirant, Mohamed Abdi Mohamud- Wajir gubernatorial aspirant, Muthomi Njuki – Tharaka Nithi gubernatorial aspirant, Oscar Sudi –Kapseret MP aspirant, Phillip Kaloki – Nairobi county deputy gubernatorial aspirant, Rigathi Gachagua – Deputy President nominee, Samson Cherargei – Nandi senatorial aspirant, Samuel Arama –
Nakuru Town West MP aspirant, Sospeter Ojaamong’ – Teso South MP aspirant.
The comprehensive Red Card list can be accessed on the National Integrity Alliance (NIA) website. The list above is not exhaustive, given that many of those who have declared their interest to seek elective positions in the
August 2022 general elections have either been adversely mentioned by investigative institutions, face
prosecution or are already convicted.  This is a continuous campaign, and we are still reviewing a number of
reports and we will update and publicise the Red Card 2022 list.
How did we arrive at the list for Red Card 2022
The Red Card 2022 list has been generated from authentic and verifiable investigative reports. It includes information gathered from existing reports by oversight institutions including, the Office of the Auditor General (OAG), the Ethics & Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR), the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC),
Parliament and various cases before the courts both concluded and active.  The process also involved the
people’s vetting commission, comprised of credible civil society and faith-based organizations who scrutinized and validated the list.
The Red Card 2022 list is anchored on the Constitution of Kenya 2010. The guiding criteria is generated from the national values as envisaged in Article 1 and Article 10 of the Constitution; the principles of leadership and integrity under Chapter Six of the Constitution; the principles of public finance in Article 201, values of public services in Article 232 and qualifications for election, moral and ethical requirements referred to under Articles 99 (1) (b) and 193(1)(b) of the Constitution. Other subsidiary legislations include the Public Finance Management Act 2012, Anti- Corruption and Economic Crimes Act 2011, the Leadership and Integrity Act 2012,  the Elections Act 2011 and the
Public Procurement and Disposal Act 2015; the NCIC Act and KNCHR Act.
Our rallying call
We call on electoral vetting institutions to exercise their mandate and bar all corrupt and unethical aspirants from vying in the elections. We shall complement this effort by raising awareness of the importance of ethical choices. We have currently filed a petition in court seeking a legal interpretation on the minimum integrity threshold of candidates seeking elective and appointive positions in the public service, as well as the final custodian institution for Chapter 6 of the Constitution.
To disrupt the real and present danger to the Nation, we call on Kenyans to join us in a 70-day campaign, beginning today, to Red Card all corrupt and unethical political aspirants. Citizens should flash red cards at any corrupt and unethical aspirants in their rallies and political activities to express their discontent with such individuals.
Beginning next week, we will launch an online petition on change.org; we ask the public to sign the petition which we will present together with the list of Red Carded individuals to the EACC and IEBC. We must hold all current and aspiring leaders accountable to Chapter 6 of the Constitution. In case these corrupt and unethical
political aspirant’s sieve through the vetting institutions, we call on voters to reject them at the ballot.
We extend our hands of cooperation and partnership to all who seek to place Chapter 6 at the heart of our democracy. We commit to work with political parties, vetting and other relevant institutions to sensitize citizens on the minimum integrity threshold for current and future leaders.
Lastly, Kenyans have been made to abandon their ideals every time we have an election because politicians set the agenda making the quest for integrity subservient to other interests. On 9th of August 2022, Kenyans have a date with destiny; we have one more chance to vote for integrity.

WHAT IS THE REDCARD CAMPAIGN
The #RedCard Campaign seeks to bar aspirants that fall short of the ethical standards of integrity from assuming elective or appointive office. The new spirit of active citizenship across all levels of society and government must be catalysed to enforce existing robust laws and institutions and roll back the future abuse of public office and theft of public resources. The Red Card Campaign has three objectives for the next 70 days. They are 1.) Public education against corruption and abuse of office 2.) De-campaign aspirants who fall short of the ethical threshold of Chapter 6, and 3.) Institute legal proceedings for the removal of those who win the elections despite their demonstrated unethical behaviour.
