Ruto Close Ally Urge IEBC To Postpone Elections In Case Voter Registration is Inevitable Before 2022

Vocal Woman Representative of Isiolo County and a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto Rehema Jaldesa has called upon the Electoral Independent and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to postpone the voter registration exercise.

Jaldesa claims that the mass registration should have been carried while ago as a continuous process, and bringing it forth when time is gone, might interfere with the 2022 polls.

She went on to state that if it is a must to have the registration of new voters, then the elections should be postponed to allow the Electoral Agency to carry out credible, free and fair elections when the commission is well prepared.

"My humble request is for IEBC to postpone this registration exercise, and should not wait for the last minute. If the exercise interferes with the election cycle, then I will not be ashamed to say that we should start thinking of postponing the elections," said Jaldesa.

She further revealed that thousands of the residents of the North Eastern Region do not yet have Identification cards due to the processes involved particularly the vetting stage.

"I can tell you without any doubt that at least 20,000 youths of Isiolo County do not IDs," added Jaldesa.
