We  have seen the posters, we have seen the tweets, many speculations led around the hashtag #freshcandidate.

As the elections etch ever closer, the identity of the fresh candidate caused many questions.


It seems the Fresh candidate is not a person at all. The news was unveiled on the website that showed the fresh candidate as a  solar lamp from Solar King.

This makes sense as the slogan of the ‘candidate’ was Chagua Nuru.

The solar lamp includes an MP3 Player, FM Radio, mobile phone charger and bluetooth speaker.

Some were intrigued by the campaign;



Others weren’t so impressed
