"Violence as an Effective Tool of Manipulating Elections in 2022 is Being Tried," Lawyer Claims

Popular city advocate now claims that the 2022 electioneering period will be distinguished by violence and bribery among other political malpractices.

Mini polls slated for Tuesday May 18 2021 were afflicted by bribery and fraudulent allegations.

Police brutality were witnessed constituting the detention of various politicians who were held incommunicado in various police stations.

The deputy Director of Criminal Investigations confirmed that those arrested during the Tuesday May 18 mini polls skirmishes will be arraigned in Court and face the law over their misconducts.

The same scenarios were witnessed in by-elections that were held throughout the past year. This replicates common scenarios in the 2017/2018 presidential race.

These hampers the provision of free, fair and credible elections by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission leading to dissatisfaction among rivals.

If this becomes the case, then Kenyans should brace for another 2007/08 like post election violence.
