Just a day after the IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati and his team withdrew themselves from the the panel formed by the state to ensure elections preparedness, he have come up with another restrictions to all politicians and more so aspirants.
In a post by the capital FM, Wafula Chebukati has announced that all politicians should not attend public harambees. Chebukati announce this terming that some politicians may organize political fundraising for their own campaigns.
This is expected to take effect as from 9th December 2021. Therefore politicians have only one week of attending fundraising invites before the last date. This could be a huge blow to most leaders across the country including the top seat aspirants William Ruto and Raila Odinga who have been attending such events to popularise themselves.
In the case of IEBC withdrawal from the National Multi-Sectoral Consultative Forum on Election Preparedness and Technical Working Committee after consultation, adding that the panel would interfere with it's independence.
Is it a nice move to restrict politicians from attending fundraising event? Leave a comment on your thoughts.
