Nairobi county government has ordered outdoor advertising companies to pull down all banners and billboards mounted by politicians during the mass voter registration.

City Hall’s head of devolved units John Ntoiti said on Thursday that the official campaign period has not started.

He said city askaris have also been directed to arrest politicians who address rallies in the city in vernacular languages. Those arrested will face charges of being a public nuisance and incitement.

Mr Ntoiti made the remarks at a media briefing in City Hall.
