Kenya: Church Gives Hopefuls Campaign Platform
By George Murage, 1 January 2013
Over 100 aspirants in Nakuru county were given a rare opportunity by the church to sell their policies if elected to office. In the event organized by major churches in the county and attended by over 3,000 people, the aspirants were each given a chance to sell their ideologies to the people.
The voters braved rains at the AP grounds in Naivasha to listen to their leaders during the event that was also used as a prayer meeting. Church leaders said the forum was meant to give residents a chance to know and question their leaders so as to make informed choices at the elections.
