Political parties in members registration fraud

04 January 2013, 14:15

Nairobi - With less than three months to the next general elections and the deadline for party nominations fast approaching it is emerging that political parties are in a rush to attract new members actually engaged in fraud.

According to The Standard, under the new election rules a political party is only considered a national party if it has at least two thousand registered members in each of the 47 counties a feat that proved to be a hard task for most of the parties fielding candidates for the next elections.

Details now indicate that political parties fraudulently registered   members in a bid to gain legitimacy… what started as isolated complaints by Kenyans on social media has unearthed an ugly party registration fraud.
