The EACC Clearance Certificate is considered as one of the most challenging forms to obtain in Kenya.
This is a MUST have Certificate for those seeking employment from the government. What makes the Certificate challenging to obtain is the bureaucracy involved in getting it in the first place.
To obtain the EACC Clearance certificate, one has to physically visit EACC offices or Integrity House in Nairobi which is located on Milimani Road, adjacent to Valley Road on Integrity Centre to obtain a self-declaration form.
How to Get the EACC Clearance Certificate
The self-declaration form is filled to completion and then taken to Forodha House in Milimani Law Court on Upper Hill Close near Ushuru Co-op Savings & Credit Society limited Nairobi.
At the court, one has to part with Ksh 50 to obtain a signature and seal from the magistrate on duty (only between 12 pm -1 pm and 2 pm-3:30 pm working days).
To avoid the long queue at Forodha House, one can opt to have the form signed and stamped by a private lawyer at a reasonable cost.
After appending the signature and seal, the form is taken back to EACC office at Integrity House in Nairobi to obtain a clearance signature from the officials of Kenya Anti Corruption Authority.
