President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ruling party has received Sh715.8 million from aspirants seeking various positions, ranging from MCA to governor.
The figure is the total of what aspirants for the positions paid. The fee for the presidential aspirant was not included in the tally.
Governors were to pay Sh500,000, senators Sh250,000, MPs Sh250,000, woman representatives Sh250,000 and MCAs Sh50,000.

“Jubilee has submitted the list of all aspirants in the six positions. The positions are very competitive,” Guchu said.
The party primaries are scheduled for April 21.
