A qualification matrix for Kenyan political leaders?

The Mike Sonko saga has reignited the debate about leadership qualifications and vetting before one runs for office. Who should be vetting and what should the criteria be?

A local civil society group called the Change Associates Trust has put together a “leadership qualification matrix” all political positions under the new constitution, (elective & appointed), their job descriptions, and the proposed attributes of people aspiring to seat in any of those seats. The idea behind the matrix is “to help
us shift the discussion of post-2012 leaders from who to what.”

What are your thoughts? What would be in your leadership matrix?
