The Directorate of Criminal investigation has finally answered as to why the Nairobi Governor was issued a clean good conduct certificate.
DCI detectives who were responding to a question asked by one Patrick Safari said an applicant can be issued a clean good conduct certificate is he/she is acquitted by the court of law.
They continued by saying that if found guilty and charged then the record is stored for 20 years before it is expunged.

“Greetings @patricksafari. It is good to note that if an applicant had cases and he/she was acquitted by a court of law, that criminal record is EXPUNGED from the criminal database.
It is however not the case if an applicant committed permanent offenses which include robbery with violence, murder, treason, rape, and drug-related crimes.
Finally, the say anyone can be issued with the certificate whether they were convicted or acquited of their charges of whether they were convicted, acquitted, dismissed, discharged or have cases pending in court.
Despite that, the offense convicted under or cases pending before the court are indicated in the remarks column of the Police Clearance Certificate.”
