Kenya: Hopefuls Demand Cars From Uhuru

Jubilee Coalition candidates in Migori are demanding three cars to use in their campaigns for presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta.

A memorandum dated February 8 promises to deliver 40 per cent of the total votes to Jubilee, but only if their demands for 'logistical' support are met.

"We appeal for logistical support in the form of kangas, mosquito nets, t-shirts, hats, arm bands, two-three cars mounted with public address systems and any other logistical support which may enhance our capacity," the memorandum states.

The Jubilee line up in Migori consist of Tom Mboya who is running for the governor's seat, his running mate and political scientist Chacha Maroa and women's representative Elsheba Akinyi Ayoma.

The memorandum states that the team has mapped out a strategy to deliver the senate, three parliamentary and at least 10 ward representatives seats.
