In the first week of the exercise only 202,518 people registered as new voters against a target of out of the weekly target of 1.5 million since the exercise kicked off seven days ago. In a statement, the commission chairman Wafula Chebukati attributed the low turn out to general voter apathy, insecurity, lack of national identity cards and the culture of last minute rush.
