Boom shell: Kenya situation - ICC Prosecutor statement regarding charges against Francis Muthaura

Elections 2013: Battle for On-line Votes – Jubilee Alliance has the upper hand

The Jubilee Alliance campaign secretariat has in the last month proved to be better organized in terms of well managed on-line presence. In the last one week creative juices seems to be emanating more from this coalition which seems to have put their all on winning this elections.
The other notable observations are that this campaign seems to have an appreciation of design thinking. This alliance was the first to incorporate the voting sticker to their posters.
