IEBC cautions leaders

01 May 2012, 08:48 Steve Wambugu

The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission has cautioned all the political aspirants in the country to be wary of the elections offences.

Mohamed Hussun affirmed that unlike before, there are stringent measures governing the process of fair and transparent voting in the country.

In this regard, Hussun, said any candidate who flouts the provisions of the Elections Act on the elections offences will be subject to harsh legal punishment.

The offences include forgery or destroying any nomination paper, using undue influence, bribery, using language which is threatening, being
involved in the threat of force and using violence creating a material disruption with the intention of preventing a political party from holding a public political meeting among others.

“We now have very strict laws that ensure that the elections are held in a peaceful atmosphere. The laws that are not evident in any other
party of the world. And therefore, each one of you must critically look at the election offences and their penalties,” Hussun told the
Nakuru County political aspirants who had gathered in the Old Town Hall today during a public political parties forum.

While recounting on the impact of force as experienced in the 2007 general elections, he noted of the hefty penalties accompanied with its usage and urged the aspirants to avoid committing the offence.
