Reduce campaign spending for politicians, IEBC told

17 August 2016, 19:10

Nairobi - Rift Valley Council of elders has called on the IEBC to reduce limits set for political campaigns and make public the formula they used to come up with estimates on political campaigns financing.

Led by the council chair Gilbert Kabage noted that the limits set were still too high an should be reduced further.

 The elders said it was also important for IEBC to compel the aspirants to state their source of funds and inform the public on the same in a bid to condemn buying votes by the aspirants.

“How aspirants generously flash out money to citizens during campaigns is shocking and as such the IEBC should clearly outline the lawful sources and reduce the limits they set to avoid buying votes.” Kabage said.

He added that the huge figures are a clear indicator of how sitting leaders use millions to maintain their positions and later compensate themselves with public resources.

“Kenyans should know that the more a politician spends in campaigns, the more they are likely to reward themselves handsomely with public funds once they assume office.” he said

The leaders called on the parliament to pass laws requiring political parties to publish their book of accounts to ensure corruption within parties is edged out.

Kabage said that the heavy expenditure set by the commission was inappropriate as it scared away potential leaders who cannot meet such figures.
