Labour and Social Protection Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie has denied that the ongoing cash transfer programme for elderly Kenyans is being used to hoodwink voters ahead of the August 8 elections.
Speaking in Nairobi, the CS dismissed the claims, saying they were unsubstantiated.
The Sh7.4 billion programme has seen 250,000 elderly persons registered and is targeting 500,000 more by the end of August.
