We recognize the important role ETrs as part of civil society have played and continue to play in peace-building and in promoting citizens’ rights and fundamental freedoms.

We wish to specifically refer ETrs to section 23 (1) of the Act, and the Code of Conduct 1995 (Legal Notice No. 306) and the values contained therein which are obligations under the Act.

The Board further wishes to remind ETrs of the provisions of Article 14(a) and 14(b) of the Code of Conduct which provide that ETrs in observance of the value of Respect shall inter alia:

1. Observe the integrity, national security and sovereignty of the Republic of Kenya; trust other organizations and act in good faith and good-will;
