Devolution has promoted significant changes in the country right now, and most Kenyan citizens are anticipating many developments especially at the county level. One of the critical expectations for Kenyans is employment opportunities, which by far has been the primary benefit expected by Kenyans. Reputably, most Kenyans have the right skills to stand an opportunity of securing a job in Kenya. However, to be shortlisted for the county jobs in Kenya, you do not only require academic qualifications. A valid clearance form from the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) is among the vital extra requirements you need.
EACC clearance certificate
This document is known to be the most strict clearance form to get in the country. This was obvious in before the 2017 general elections when the commission ordered all the contestants to submit their self-declaration forms. All this is normally aimed at ensuring the applicants are in line with the requirements of the Leadership and Integrity Act (of Section 13) and the sixth chapter of the Kenyan Constitution. This is accomplished by conducting background checks on all info submitted by the contestants. Here is a step by step simple guide on how you can get the EACC clearance certificate.
You will begin by filing copies of the self-declaration form and attach a copy of either your Kenyan national identity card or Kenyan passport.
You will then follow by signing the completed form with your official signature being witnessed by a Commissioner of Oaths or a Magistrate.
Upon submission of the form, the details in the duly completed form will then be checked, and the copy of your certificate application will be stamped as an acknowledgement.
You will then submit your properly completed form in person or have it presented on your behalf at the EACC offices at the Integrity Center, any Huduma Center or the commission’s regional offices, or at. Please do not make an online submission; it will not be considered.
You will not be assigned with a certificate, but the commission will submit a confidential report to your prospective employer.
EACC clearance application form
To get the EACC clearance application form, you have to visit the commission’s headquarters at Integrity House, Nairobi. The offices are found at the Milimani Road and Valley Road junction, just a few meters from Hope International. To get to this location by public means, you can go to the Kencom bus station and board a matatu from there.
If you are searching for county jobs and you are not able to visit the Integrity Centre in person, you can opt to generate a Self-Declaration form on the EACC website (http://www.eacc.go.ke/) and fill them out. You will then submit the form to Forodha House (found at Milimani Law Court, Upper Hill Close) next to Ushuru Co-op Savings & Credit Society. Here, you will pay Ksh. 50 to be offered a seal and a signature of the Magistrate on duty. Note that these services are only provided between noon and 1.00 pm, and between 2.00 pm and 3.30 pm on weekdays. After this, you will then be deemed to go to Integrity House where you will acquire a clearance signature from Kenya Anti-Corruption Authority officials. Alternatively, you can decide to look for a private lawyer where you will pay an extra amount to get that seal on your EACC clearance form.
