Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri on Tuesday said that he is the only politician in Kenya who does not give out cash to anyone during campaigns.

Speaking on Radio Jambo, Ngunjiri claimed that he did not give 'even a coin to any voter' during the campaigns.

How is this possible in Kenyan politics?

To find out the truthfulness of the legislator's remarks, I had to verify from Bahati residents.

It turned out, however, that Ngunjiri was just lying to Kenyans.

"You don't even need to ask about that question. Which politician in Kenya conducts campaigns without dishing out a coin to voters?" John Karanja, a resident of Maili Kumi centre within Bahati.

A group of women who claimed they were mobilizers in a campaign movement dubbed OKN Tena (Onesmus Kimani Ngunjiri) said any politician must have money.

"That is just politics, he had to say that," one of the women said.
