Scribes plea over polls
KENYA Correspondents Association has urged the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to constitute a vetting committee ahead of the polls. Association chairman Oloo Janak said the committee will ensure aspirants with a tainted past are not elected. Janak made the remarks on Sunday during a two-day County Forum in Migori town organised by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the Kenya Correspondents Association. The forum was dubbed “National Cohesion and Devolution: The Ethnic Challenge of Devolution”. Janak said the IEBC and all political parties should ensure the coming elections are free and fair, right from the parties’ nomination stage.
