SCRAP Requirement of clearance certs from HELB,KRA,GOOD CONDUCT, CRB for Job Seekers

This petition had 752 supporters

Many young people are locked out when employment opportunities open up given that they can't afford to have Clearance Certificates required by various institutions as part of application requirements.

The cost of obtaining this certificates can prove to be expensive for fresh job seekers (graduates).

Have a  look at this breakdown courtesy of Mr Ezekiel Mutua CEO KFB;

1) CERTIFICATE OF GOOD CONDUCT - Ksh. 1,050 Payment For: Not Being a Criminal

2) HELB CLEARANCE - Ksh. 1,000 Payment For: Not having an outstanding arrears

3) E.A.C.C CLEARANCE - Ksh. 500 Payment For: Not Being Corrupt

4) Credit Reference Bureau Clearance – Ksh. 2,200 Payment For: Not having Debts or Loans with Financial institutions

TOTAL - Ksh. 4,750 Payment is therefore what a fresh graduate needs to be having before applying for a job having not factored in other logistical costs involved in it.


1.Its my view that these clearance certificates can as well be obtained within the first month once employed and can be done together with other internal requirements such as the need of a Bank Account especially with regard to the KRA certificate given that tax must be deducted on the first salary.

2.Good Conduct can be obtained within the first two months of employment alongside with HELB Certificate but EACC and CRB Certificates should be done away with!
