It is believed that moneybag politicians introduced vote buying after the introduction of electronic voting system in 2015, which barricaded their former gimmicks of rigging and ballots box snatching.

Desperate political actors who want to win by all cost, having seen that good party manifestoes and integrity of candidates jostling for public offices are not longer enough to assure electoral victory.
