Kenya: IEBC Urged to Conduct Civic Education

NYERI Senator Candidate Mutahi Kagwe has urged the IEBC to start conducting thorough civic education ahead of the general election slated for March 4.

Kagwe who is vying for the senator seat on a Narc party ticket said there was urgent need for civic education as the official 21 campaign days start this Monday.

Speaking to journalists in Nyeri town yesterday, Kagwe suggested the IEBC call for a candidate's forum in order to interpret law on how the candidates and supporters should conduct themselves during this campaign period.

"The media should also educate the voters since they cover wide coverage. Let everybody be enlightened," he added.
