We’ve also added a new section on the home page sidebar to allow you to view additional aspirant and MP information, such as campaign websites, constituency websites, campaign websites and blogs for all MPs and aspirants from a central location.

We’ve added Aspirant Comment Statistics so you can track comments from the public on new aspirants. This is a very neat feature — now you can have an idea about the aspirants before you vote.

We’ve also fixed a bug on MP Comment Statistics where it would include flagged comments in the count. This has bee corrected.

To more easily keep track of new comments, we’ve indicated the date of each comment on the sidebar summary

You can also now view the number of comments directly from the MP and Aspirant profiles

What’s Changed

The purpose of the MP and Aspirant comments is to solicit constructive information and insight from the public, and allow questions to be put to MPs and aspirants. Some Mzalendo users habitually abuse this facility to settle scores, real or imagined, with the aspirants, MPs and other Mzalendo users. We now shall not hesitate to ban abusers from the site indefinitely. You will be banned of you do any of the following:

  1. Use foul language of any kind. This site is used by people of all ages across the world, and therefore reflects on us as Kenyans. Be mindful of others.
  2. Abuse MPs or aspirants. No matter what your differences may be, put them across civilly.
  3. Abuse of other Mzalendo users.
  4. Peddling of rumours and innuendo. If you don’t have any evidence, be quiet. And no, “everyone knows” does not constitute evidence.
