Speaking in Nairobi during a meeting of female candidates in the forthcoming election, Mr. Nkaissery stated that heckling political candidates will not be tolerated and those spotted will be arrested.

The CS advised politicians to equip members of their campaign teams with recorders in order to capture hecklers during the rallies.

Mr. Nkaissery added that the use of abusive language against rival camps will also not be allowed and those found doing so will be prosecuted.

He assured female politicians that they would receive proper security personnel to protect them during the camping season.

Nkaissery told political parties to submit their schedule to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for proper planning.

The CS' directive comes at a time when heckling politicians has been rampant.

On Monday, Thika MP Alice Nga'ng'a was badly embarrassed during President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto's tour in Kiambu.

When she was just about to speak, supporters of her rival candidate,  Patrick Wainaina who is vying for the seat as an independent, heckled and forced her to cut her address.
