Pollsters and government disagree

13 February 2013, 17:38

Nairobi - Daily Nation reports pollsters have refuted government claims that opinion poll figures were causing tension and anxiety in the country ahead of the March polls.

According to claims by Government spokesman Muthui Kariuki the opinion polls were unnecessarily whipping up emotions that could trigger a repeat of the 2007/08 post-election violence in which 1,133 died and 650,000 displaced.

He said government was ‘keeping an eye’ on the pollsters and warned that unspecified action will be taken against those bent at causing divisions in the country by their figures.
