Opposition Parties Blocked From Holding Any Political Rallies In The City
Between now and the election, only PNU will be able to hold political rallies in Nairobi city and all opposition parties have been effectively locked out. This has simply been accomplished by PNU booking all major venues back to back between now and the December 27th 2007 polls.
This includes Uhuru Park, Nyayo Stadium, Kasarani Stadium etc.
There is of course nothing illegal about this since any Kenyan is free to book any facilities they so wish as long as they can meet the financial obligations involved. So is it a case of PNU outsmarting all the other political parties, or have they shot themselves in the foot. Only time and the results of the December 27th general elections will be able to answer that question conclusively.
