The 2022 general elections in Kenya have been giving politicians sleepless nights, especially the sitting leaders and those aspiring to vie for various positions.
Aspirants in different levels of leadership have been campaigning in public places, rallies, churches, and even at funeral occasions despite the Covid 19 pandemic.
However, according to the guidelines and rules set aside by the independent Electoral and Boundary Commission, leaders should not be campaigning at this time. Speaking on Citizen tv, the IEBC chairperson, Wafula Chebukati urged political leaders from conducting premature campaigns.
Chebukati said that leaders should officially begin their campaigns in May 2022 and end in August 2022. He added that early campaigns have no advantage but only drag economic development. The chairperson together with the new IEBC Commissioner's team assured Kenyans of free and fair elections, come 2022.
