Chapter Six Compliance Clearance Certificates

Constitution of Kenya

If you have applied for a job recently, you must have come across advertisements saying that you must fulfil the requirements of Chapter Six of the Constitution of Kenya 2010. The said Chapter touches on Leadership and Integrity. It highlights the responsibilities, conduct, and restrictions of leaders and state officers. Chapter Six of the constitution also establishes the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission which is mandated to enforce ethical practice among government officials and investigate issues of corruption.

In an effort to promote the spirit of the constitution and implement Chapter Six on Leadership and Integrity, government institutions require job applicants to obtain certain certifications in compliance with the requirements of the constitution. There are five Compliance Clearance Certificates that job applicants are required to obtain according to Chapter 6 of the Constitution:

  • Valid Certificate of Good Conduct from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations
  • Clearance Certificate from the Higher Education Loans Board
  • Tax Compliance Certificate from KRA
  • Clearance from Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission
  • A Clearance Certificate from an approved Credit Reference Bureau CRB

This means that individuals looking for a job in Kenya are required to get clearance from the Kenya Revenue Authority, the Credit Reference Bureau (CRB), Ethics and Anticorruption Commission (EAC), Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

To obtain Chapter 6 clearance certificates, you are required to log in to e-Citizen or create an account on e-Citizen. Not all of the clearances can be obtained on e-Citizen, including EACC clearance certificate and the CRB clearance certificate.

The next time you plan to apply for a job in any government or public institution, you should apply for these clearance certificates in advance.
