The workers of Kisumu county government now have a reason to smile after the county boss professor Anyang Nyong' o ordered a compulsory two days off.
According to a report by the star newspaper, governor Nyong' o gave out the leave in order to enable the people working under the Kisumu county government to mobilize their families, relatives and friends to register as voters in the ongoing voter registration process. A move that has left Kenyans talking since he is the first county chief to show such level of commitment in ensuring that people from his area of jurisdiction register as voters. It is evident that the outgoing county boss clearly understands the fact that it is only through voting that the people will be able to get rid of unworthy leaders. At the same time, the outspoken politician from the lakeside region urged people from all other parts of the nation to come out and register as voters because the third general elections to be conducted under the 2010 constitution are only seven months away.
Being a close ally of former prime minister Hon. Raila Odinga, there is a likelihood that the latter (governor Nyong' o) is interested in making sure all his people have voters cards in order to unanimously thrust the son of Jaramogi to the top seat. Speaking about the voting process, it is unfortunate that the same people who are always in the front line complaining about how different leaders have failed, have to be forced to vote. Kenyans ought to be responsible citizens and register as voters in order to unanimously send home greedy leaders have been sent home come August 9th failure to which they will forever cry of bad governance.
