Kenya: Aspirants Turn to Radio Shows

Two outgoing Members of Parliament are using vernacular radio stations to woo voters. Local Government assistant minister Lewis Nguyai, who is defending his Kabete seat on a Narc ticket, and his Limuru counterpart Peter Mwathi (Democratic Party) have spent huge sums of cash in the campaigns.

Sources at the stations said each candidate had spent about Sh1.2 million in meet-the-people tours in their respective constituencies.
