Kenya: Kinango Voters Get Sh500 to Register in Voi

Voi aspirants have been accused of offering Kinango voters Sh500 to entice them into registering there.

The accusation was made by Mackinon Road Township councillor Ahmed Musa who said the voters were being asked to register in Myaseni Primary School and lorries were being used to ferry them.

IEBC Kinango coordinator Alphonce Tsuwi confirmed he had received the complaints and said he had already sent officers to investigate.

He said the commission was against voter importation even as he said people were allowed to register anywhere they felt like on condition that they are not coaxed or bribed to do so.
