However, there is a catch: politicians are not allowed to put up posters in the city center or on the newly rebuilt roundabouts that were erected in collaboration between the county government and private companies.
The prohibition was implemented by Governor Anyang Nyong'o's administration to prevent littering ahead of the continental event.
Participants believed politicians were placing campaign posters in strategic spots that could have been utilized to promote the lakeside city and welcome visitors ahead of the international conference, which took place from May 17 to 21.
On Wednesday, May 25, the prohibition will come to an end.
Despite the lifting of the restriction, the caveat that some sites are off limits for such advertising may prevent many politicians from gaining the visibility they desire ahead of the August 9 General Election.
The acting city manager, Mr. Abala Wanga, believes that politicians should be at the forefront of keeping the city clean.
