IEBC Suspends Voters Registration In Uhuru's Backyard And Other Regions, Gives Reason

Independent Electral commission has suspended Voters Regestration process in president Uhuru's backyard, Kiambaa constituency. According to reports, the commission has taken that step due to the ongoing cases at the courts concerning election. Eligible voters in Nguu/Masumba (Makueni), Mahoo (Taita Taveta) and Kiagu (Meru) County assembly wards will also have to wait before being enrolled as voters. According to the Constitution, voters regestration should not take place in areas where there is pending court pettition. Therefore, people from those areas will have to be patient untill they will hear from independent Electral commission on their fate.

Well, while the regestration process is ongoing, the commission has decried low turnout than what was expected. Yesterday, chebukati announced the weekly target confirming that Indeed Kenyans are not taking the issue seriously the way they expected. The target was set at 1.5 million weekly turnout but only 200 Thousand came out to be regestered.

Mount Kenya Region is one of few areas where low regestration was recorded as compared to riftvalley counties where there was a slight improvement compared to other regions. Leaders have been pleading with residents to come out in large number and regester so that come 2022. Making decision will be easy at the ballot.
