NCD Police boss Turi, warn intending candidates

NCD Police are warning intending candidates in NCD and Central Province to follow rules and regulations in the upcoming elections.

Police will be monitoring the election period with a boost in manpower to make sure that candidates including city residents abide by the law.

A list of guidelines has been put together for candidates who will be contesting the elections to avoid any nuisance or intolerable behaviour.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi says police will discourage early campaigning, campaigning in residential areas at odd hours and bribery in the form of cash or kind will not be tolerated.

This includes policemen who are thinking of conducting and providing security for candidates.

City residents have been urged to report any suspicious activity of any candidate, resident or officer that look strange and out of the ordinary during the campaign period up to the elections.
