The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) today officially launched the election campaign in Kenya.
Candidates for the Presidency of the Republic and for a seat in Parliament will have more than two months to convince voters to vote for them.
During this time they will be able to chat, submit programs (better to say promises) and distribute information about them.
"From this moment on, verbal violence, intimidation and misconduct are not allowed," said the IEBC Commissioner, Wafula Chebukati. "The campaign will have to be conducted in a peaceful manner and in compliance with current laws."
As part of the forthcoming vote on August 8, the largest deployment of law enforcement was set up.
Under the command of the Chief of the National Police Joseph Boinnet, there will be 180,000 agents scattered around the area to ensure security and to crack in any attempt to destabilize or exploit elections.
A group of officers has also been set up to follow and raise awareness of national media that will be called to not ignite the pre-election climate with trendy articles.
It is the will of all, as President Kenyatta has mentioned last month, that these elections take place in a climate of peace and serenity.
"The whole world is looking at us," Kenyatta repeatedly said, "this time we have to prove civilization and confirm what has been said about our country recently in terms of security and reliability." A nation that grows steadily as ours does not Can afford to ruin everything with electoral scandals. "
There will be 150,000 employees of national law enforcement agencies called for peace in view of the upcoming government elections scheduled for August 8th. The agents will be used from the official start of the campaign, scheduled for May 29.
