What you need to know:

  • There have been claims that some politicians are offering Sh1,000 bribe for each voter transferred to their preferred polling station.
  • In Nyanza, some politicians are offering goodies like a bottle of soda, cash handouts, free seeds and a packet of unga for each newly registered voter.

The electoral commission is under pressure to investigate bribery, intimidation, illegal transfer of voters and actions to suppress listing that have rocked the ongoing voter registration that targets six million new voters.
