With the general election around the
corner, local aspirants are on a campaigning spree, writes
Alas! The local community has to once
again contend with flyers and campaign posters posted on walls
and littered on the streets.
Residential areas, private properties,
the business district even electric polls haven’t been spared.

Nyali Bridge one is bombarded by the unsightly colourful posters
plastered on every surface and disheartened by shabby look of
the area which has now become an eyesore for the residents since
the campaigning fever took hold.
Although NEMA has issued an order that
all political aspirants will pay a fee to the National
Environment Management Authority for removing their posters
after the August 8th election, some Mombasa residents
are still doubtful of the outcome..
