Jubilee bloggers go ham on Nasa on Twitter
The online war between the two major political outfits, Jubilee Party and Nasa, just weeks to the general election has intensified.
Jubilee bloggers have been using the hashtag #NasaTheCopyCats to discredit all that was captured in the opposition’s manifesto.
Led by State House digital director Dennis Itumbi, the bloggers have been picking out promises made by Nasa and comparing them to what the government has done in the respective sectors making their hashtag a top trend.
On their part, the opposition bloggers, led by Dikembe, have been on a mission to have the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) publish the voter register using hashtags #PublishVoterRegister and #FakeVoterRegister.
Here are some of the tweets from both political sides:
I fail to understand the fuss. The law is clear. IEBC must #PublishVoterRegister for transparency and credibility.

Why is it hard for IEBC to #PublishVoterRegister ? I want to know if we’ve ghost voters in Cheptongei. Truth sets all free.

The voter registration process just eroded the little faith we had in IEBC. They must redeem themselves #PublishVoterRegister
