All aspirants to pay for littering city during campaigns

All aspirants in this year’s election will be required to pay to clean public places splattered with their campaign posters after the polls.

The money will be paid to the National Environment Management Authority.

The environment deposit bond fee seeks to ensure that all aspirants are responsible for the littering during campaigns.

Nema’s compliance and enforcement officer Zephania Ouma said the charges will be determined once they hold a meeting with the electoral commission and Council of Governors.

“We are playing our role in accordance with the law which is clear on the imposition of the fee. Once we hold the meeting we shall come up with deliberations on how to make it operational,” said Mr Ouma.

He said other factors to be discussed after the meeting include the decision on whether it will be the responsibility of the parties and coalitions to deposit the bond on behalf of aspirants or individual aspirant.
