State and public officers vying in elections

Limiting ability to stand or campaign is to avoid conflicts of interest, misusing public funds

In Summary

• President to use entire public service ( CSs, PSs and public servants generally) to, among other things, market Raila as Uhuru’s successor.

• This is clearly political, by any definition, and election-related. Most public servants, but not CSs, would violate Section 23 if they did this. 

My intention is to look at the law about resigning before standing, and about campaigning – without having space here to include existing court cases.
