Coalition for Accountable Political Financing (CAPF)

Written by

The Coalition for Accountable Political Financing (CAPF) yesterday wrote a letter to the ECK chairman Samuel Kivuitu of their intention to monitor party financing around the General Elections.

The Political parties and individual politicians are currently pouring a lot of money to sway their supporters to vote in their favor during party nominations and on the Election Day- 27th December, 2007.

The passing of the Political Parties Bill in Parliament yesterday is a landmark event on a process that began sixteen years ago.

“We are happy with the outcome and this also brings to an end the absence of solid constitutional provisions governing parties and elections in Kenya,” says a CAPF member.
