The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has prohibited legislators from taking part in Harambees, a move that is relied upon to check hopefuls from affecting citizens.
As indicated by IEBC seat Wafula Chebukati, wannabes will submit a discretionary offense by going to straightforwardly or adding to public Harambees from Thursday, December 9, 2021.
"After Thursday, December 9, taking an interest in Harambees will be a political race offense," Wafula Chebukati said yesterday.
"An individual who straightforwardly or in a roundabout way takes part in any way out in the open raising money inside 8 months going before a General Election or during the political race time frame will be excluded from challenging in the political race held during the political decision year," he said.
It is perceived that of the relative multitude of official hopefuls, Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto gives off an impression of being the hardest hit by the new guideline declarations by the appointive office in front of his titanic fight with ODM Leader Raila Odinga.
Ruto has been known to be liberal, sprinkling millions in harambees, something that has put him in constant disagreement with Raila, who has on various events scrutinized the DP's wellspring of riches.
