A man from Tetu was on Monday assaulted by rowdy youth after he failed to pay them for enroling as voters in Nyeri Town constituency.
The middle-aged man who was said to have been hired by a politician from Nyeri town was beaten up by a group of more than 30 youth after he failed to pay them the Sh1,500 each he had promised.
The youth from Tetu constituency had allegedly been promised money to register at Kiambuiri Primary School in Nyeri Town constituency.
The young men, who are from Gichira, Kangaita, Mung'aria and Kiawaithanji, said the man tried to evade them when they demanded for their pay. There have been reported cases of voter-buying in Central Province where people are transported to register in other constituencies.
