US: Kenya need to fix polls date

09 March 2012, 17:57

Nairobi - According to Capital News Kenya has been urged by the United States visiting Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman to call for an early announcement of the next General Election.

Addressing a press conference in Nairobi on Friday morning, Sherman said fixing the date early was necessary for the country to prepare for the first election under the new Constitution.

Sherman asserted that the decision on the date of elections is of course up to Kenyans, although they have urged that the date be set as soon as possible so that all the mechanics of the elections are put in place.
