Energy minister Kiraitu Murungi has banned journalists in Meru from covering his functions.
On Monday, the Star published a story where Kiraitu and Peter Munya, a governor aspirant, gave Sh700,000 to teachers contrary to the Elections Act.
Kiraitu, a senator candidate sent a message through his communications department that no journalist should attend his meeting until further notice.
"Hi colleague, May I pass this communication to you that the Hon Kiraitu Murungi has suspended us from covering his activities until further notice," read a message from one of his communicators Patrick Muriungi.
However the IEBC is yet to take action.
Munya argued that they cannot be disqualified as the law provides for aspirants to give out money under the legitimate spending clause.
TNA governor candidate Kilemi Mwiria has called on the IEBC to take action against the two hopefuls.
Mwiria said they are misusing the teachers and chiefs by giving them money to carry out campaigns.
"IEBC should take immediate action against the two aspirants. This should not be allowed to happen as many people will lose confidence in the system," said Kilemi.
