Nominated MP Cecily Mbarire is the subject of an internet discussion for a campaign poster she released to promote her Embu County August gubernatorial bid.
Mbarire, who is eyeing the county’s top seat under the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, on Saturday tweeted a poster that looks nothing like the usual yellow-and-green themed materials her counterparts use.
Not even a wheelbarrow featured on Ms. Mbarire’s poster. Instead, the aspiring governor went for a minimalistic, low-key lit profile shot, her hands held together.
At the top-left corner of the poster, a beam of light comes from what seems like a star, with the words ‘The new hope for Embu’ placed next to it.
