Political parties forging M-Pesa data

Posted by Administrator on January 16, 2012

THE registrar of political parties Lucy Ndung’u is investigating reports that political parties in the country are stealing and forging customer data from mobile phone money transfer services for use in the ongoing membership recruitment. The Political Parties Liason Committee has written to Ndung’u complaining that some of the political parties are flouting the law on recruitment of members in a bid to comply with the Political Parties Act.

The Liason Committee chairman Nderitu Gachagua said they have received complains that some of the officials of parties in the country were allegedly using dubious means to register members in order to comply with the new laws.

Gachagua said some party officials have invaded money transfer agents’ shops to corruptly retrieve the registered data of customers which include Identity Cards and use it to register people as members without their knowledge. “This is fraud and the Registrar of Political Parties should investigate and discipline those behind the syndicate,” Gachagua said.

Gachagua who  was with the Liason Committee’s secretary general Alfayo Agufana was speaking in Eldoret at a meeting with representatives of political parties. “We have already raised the  matter with Ndungu and other relevant authorities for investigations,” Gachagua said.
