Senior Counsel Criticized Raila's Candidature, Claims He Looks Like A Rabbit Caught In Headlights

2022 general election day is drawing closer and political leaders are busy traversing the country in a bid to sell their candidature to the electorates. SC Ahmednassir Abdullahi has criticized Raila Odinga saying that he doesn't look like a a presidential candidate.

Taking to his official Twitter, SC tweeted "Good people, please tell me if I'm wrong, for I don't think Hon Raila has any voice/say in his campaign for President! Isn't he too scripted by THE pipers? Good people, doesn't Hon Raila look like a deer/rabbit caught in the headlights".

In Kenya, to vote in an election, one must be over the age of 18 and possess an identity card, which is the basic form of identification for adults.

Kenyan law mandates that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) perform ongoing voter registration for Kenyans who reach the age of majority. This is not the case, as the commission frequently complains about a lack of resources and a lack of willingness to enroll potential voters.

Kenyans above the age of majority number over 27 million, according to the country's 2019 census report.

In 2017, there were 19.6 million registered voters, but due to population growth and changing age demographics, Kenya today has at least 14.7 million young people aged 18 to 35.
