There was a By-election yesterday at Malindi;coastal Kenya. A certain MP is said to have been caught bribing voters to have them vote for the person they were supporting. This MP is on the government side. I was not surprised at all and it seems money reigned in that area yesterday. If i were there i would have made sure to have my hands on the money and then vote for whoever i want,after all it is citizens money they are misusing and whether he is caught or not there is nothing much will be done anyway.

That also happens here in our country . Some staffers of a politician would give money secretly to some voters who can be bribed . Sad , but that is true here also.

This must be a global practice to obviously be stopped . . . how about NO ONE votes in any country for any one running ?

Bribing voters is such an underhanded deceiving practice and it is bad enough there are those that do the bribing, but the ones who take are just as guilty . . .

That's a good idea. Take the money but vote for the person you want to. This is perfect justice if they are bribing people.

Bribing is just wrong and all we can do about it is hope honest people get elected. I hope that will be the case for your country.

Unfortunately a voted honest person swims in a field full of corrupt minds and he/she gets dragged along. it is a sad situation

That's the sad thing. It happens not only in your country. I hope the voters have their own conscience.
