Funding the presidential elections is too costly and costs billions of shillings,as it involves travelling across the country and holding many meetings.
And now according to Amani National Congress(ANC) Secretary General Simon Gikuru, President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee government is funding Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto's presidential bids.
The SG added that it was a fact the President was funding Azimio La Umoja movement,while DP gets funding courtesy of being in government.
"We all know State House is funding Azimio and DP Ruto's presidential bids. When you got to Karen,which is DP Ruto's official residence,you are served tea which is paid through government coffers," Simon said.
He also accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of trying to impose some leaders on them,and told him the decision on who will be president is solely on Kenyans.
"I have much respect for President.He should be Mwai Kibaki and let Kenyans decide on who they wish,to be their next president," Simon said while talking this morning to KBC Tv.
