NACADA has suggested that Fred Matiang'i should order the shutdown of bars and entertainment venues.
"We are requesting that all bars be closed during the elections. Business owners, religious leaders, and security personnel have convened and agreed that no bars will be open on the eve of and throughout the elections," NACADA head said.
He added, "We are in discussions with the Minister of the Interior to determine whether he will approve the idea."
A few days before the polls, Okioma stated that several counties had already adopted the initiative, and he urged the remaining counties to do the same. In addition, he advised the youth not to be used by politicians to foment disorder and cautioned politicians against using the youth to interfere with the campaigns of other leaders.
"We are requesting that the leaders refrain from abusing the kids. We request that they not be utilized to disrupt rallies. This is the level of engagement we have across the nation," said Okioma.
