Mass Voters Registration: IEBC Reveals What's Affecting Preparation For Next Year's Elections

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) begun mass voters registration yesterday with the exercise expected to continue for the next thirty (30) days.

Kenyans have been urged to turn out in large numbers to ensure that they register as voters ahead of the 2022 General elections.

However, the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati has sent his plea to the Government that the process will be affected by the lack of adequate funds to purchase the required kits for the process.

Chebukati stated: "These kits will go round the wards in all the registration centres. We do not have sufficient funds to procure more kits for all polling stations."

This will come as a major worry as the IEBC chairperson revealed that the budget set aside for the elections will be affected as it was previously estimated that each individual's voting preparation requires at least 2,500 shillings.
