DISSECTING THE ELECTION PROCESS OF A VIBRANT AFRICAN DEMOCRACY: THE KENYA ELECTION DATABASE VERSION 3.0

Kenyans and the World will always remember 2017 as the year of the ‘two elections’ when for the first time in Africa and only the fourth time in the World, a court has nullified a Presidential election. It also made history as the incumbent President, Uhuru Kenyatta became the first sitting President to survive a repeat election following nullification of his re-election. Kenya will also be remembered for having held three Presidential elections in only five years, a unique record in Africa. Every five years since independence in 1963, Kenyans have gone to the polls without fail to express their constitutional rights to choose their leaders or even refuse to do so as some did in the October 2017 repeat election.

Kenya Election Database is the first and so far only Election Data Analysis and Strategic Election Planning software on Kenya General Elections. The Database is a collection of well researched and detailed analysis of all parliamentary elections since 1969, presidential elections since 1992 and by-elections since 1993.
It also has full results of the 2013 and 2017 General Elections in respect of Presidential, Parliamentary, Senatorial, Gubernatorial and Women Representative and also the historic 2017 repeat Presidential election held on 26th October. The Database has full results of 4,044 constituency and 430 county elections covering 27,405 candidate results and is the only single source of full General Election results available in the market. The database is the most comprehensive analysis of Kenya General Elections and has been researched by competent professionals. An on-line/mobile version is available @ www.ked.co.ke .

The Kenya Election Database is designed to be a one-stop shop for all data and analysis for the eleven General Elections and two referendums that have been held since independence. By using a database format, searching for data is much faster than using PDF or excel format. It runs on a Microsoft Access platform hence can be installed in any PC, laptop or tablet with Access installed. It is downloaded from a Drop Box link after purchase and is password protected.

The Database also includes details of all 210 old constituencies and the 290 new constituencies, created in 2012, including history, administrative area covered, population, land area, maps, etc.; details of the 1,450 county assembly wards; details of 205 political parties including the 68 officially registered parties, and their symbols; 2009 population census for all 8 old provinces (regions), 47 counties, 158 districts (sub-counties), 635 divisions, 2,724 locations, 7,150 sub-locations; and 215 urban centers.

The Database has the results of both the 1999 and 2009 Census, hence can also be used for social, marketing and consumer research. The Database has details of registered voters from 1969 to February, 2017 and analysis of population vis-à-vis registered voters. It has details of all candidates who have ever stood in any General Elections since 1969, including gender and status, i.e. incumbent, former winner, previous candidate or newcomer. The Database has over 800 reports some of which are unique to this Database, e.g. Constituency notes, Political party notes, Kenya election history (1963-2017), women candidates, etc. Details of the over 24,700 Polling Centers and 40,883 streams (polling stations) in Kenya have been captured.

A new feature in this version is the Election Laws and Regulations and the 2017 IEBC Operation Timelines that can help the user to understand Kenya Election procedures.

The Database has over 800 reports that can be viewed on screen or printed. Each Reports Sub-Menu has list of reports available each having a command button on the left side for pre-viewing and on the right side for printing.

The Kenya Election Database version 3.0 is the most comprehensive analysis of any election in Africa and is equivalent to a 10,000 page reference book.

HOW TO WIN ELECTIONS IN KENYA
(a Strategic Election Planning Manual)

The early bird catches the worm so the saying goes so with the 2022 General Elections due on Tuesday, 9th August, 2022, thousands of aspirants will vie for the 1,882 seats available from President, Member of Parliament, Senator, Governor, Women Representative to Member of County Assembly.
Except for the Presidential election, party nominations (primaries) start in March, 2022 for the five other seats which is under 4 years away. Hence aspirants and incumbents have to start early to prepare for these primaries, since winners have a 90% chance of going on to be elected in the August elections. Kenya voters are unforgiving and tend to ‘fire’ incumbents at a high rate. In the 2017 elections only 118 MPs out of 290 were re-elected which is only 40.68% of total MPs. 80% of aspirants who used the Strategic Election Planning Manual ebook, the Kenya Election Campaign Management System and the Kenya Election Database software in the 2017 elections won their seats, dislodging incumbents.
An all-in-one manual using Strategic Election Planning (SEP) concept is now available to both aspirants and incumbents as an ebook (PDF). Written by political consultant and blogger, Hillary Ang’awa, the 160 page ebook under title “How to win elections in Kenya-a strategic election planning manual” costs only sh1,000. It can also be useful to political parties, election consultants, journalist, students, etc or anyone who needs to know more about election procedures in Kenya. Another reason why this ebook is critical is that it explains about the Election Campaign Financing Act, 2013 as the 2022 elections will be the first in Kenya’s history to limit the amount candidates spend on their election campaigns.
