Voter registration drive gains momentum

By Carol Kamau/KNA

Leaders from across the political divide are combing villages to whip Kenyans to register as voters for the August polls.

The leaders driven by claims that the one month mass voter register exercise to end mid next month will determine the August polls have been doing all they can to excite the masses to enlist themselves as voters.

The drive to have the targeted 6 million new voters enlisted ahead of the August 8th election is only gaining momentum by the day with politicians across the political divide putting aside all other businesses to concentrate on the mass voter registration drive.

Over 200 Jubilee aspirants in Uasin Gishu including area governor Jackson Mandago met to map out ways to ensure as many jubilee supporters register as voters.

Speaking after a closed door meeting, former Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Gladys Shollei also called on the IEBC to make public the schedule of where BVR kits will be stationed to ensure those eligible register access them with ease.

In Narok north Moitalel ole Kenta has called on chiefs and assistant chiefs to ensure they issue identification cards those who have applied to saying over 1000 lay uncollected in Narok North.

In Nakuru a cross section of political leadership allied to the Jubilee party are calling on their colleagues to shun wrangling over party issues and concentrate their energies on the ongoing voter registration drives to guarantee the president a decisive win.

They say the endless bickering over the management of the county`s Jubilee party secretariat will negate the collective quest of achieving and surpassing voter registration targets.

In Mombasa, Jubilee gubernatorial aspirant in the region, Suleiman Shahbal has called on residents to be wary of leaders who have no vision for the region.

Shahbal claimed Mombasa governor has failed to deliver his development promise to the people of Mombasa.
