Church leaders in Nakuru have appealed to leaders to stop making rigging claims. The Deliverance Churches of Kenya national council on Friday said allegations of rigging nine days to the March 4 general election on "whip- ping up emotions".
The clergymen urged the electorate to have faith in the IEBC's ability to conduct transparent and credible elections. "These allegations of rigging ahead of the elections are an old fashioned way of crying foul in Kenyan politics," said Bishop Mark Kariuki.
"We must rise above petty politics and support IEBC to oversee free and fair elections." The leaders urged voters not to elect parties, but individuals.
