Fellow Kenyans, in ensuring that both government and the private sector interact as guided by our national values and ethics:
Every company from now henceforth seeking to work with government both at the national and county level, will have to sign an approved Business Code of Ethics domiciled in the Public Procurement Oversight Authority. I direct that the Cabinet Secretary to the National Treasury gives this code effect through regulations under the Public Procurement and Disposal Act.
Any business that fails to comply with the Code will be disqualified from doing business with government for a period not less than 5 years and the information will be made public.
