With less than 13 days until the country goes to the polls, some politicians are busy cleaning up their houses. Independent candidates have been subjected to vicious attacks in their latest attempt to consolidate their strongholds. Independent candidates are welcome to run and should not be threatened or intimidated.
Kenyans are also free to vote for whomever they want and should not be forced to vote for candidates from a single political party. Voting along party lines results in the election of candidates with a poor track record. Voters should be allowed to question each candidate's manifesto and track record as a guide for how to vote.
The DP said this in reference to Dr. Mishra, who is running a well-oiled campaign against UDA candidate Mr Julius Ruto for the Kesses Constituency seat, according to Nation.
Ruto appears to be afraid of independent candidates being elected because it would be a huge embarrassment in his own backyard. Swarup is extremely wealthy and serves as the Chairman of the Mediheal Group of Hospitals.
Ruto should not complain because he has used the same tactics of spending a lot of money on large campaigns.
