The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) kickstarted mass voters registration a week ago as they target several new registrations for the thirty days of the process.
One week later, the IEBC have not reached the targeted number which is a huge task for them as they wanted more voters.
However, in the released numbers of registered voters, Deputy President William Ruto boasts of a large number of registered persons from the Rift Valley Region.
According to the report from IEBC, Deputy President William Ruto's political backyard has registered over one hundred and fifty thousand people which is the highest number compared to other regions.
These large numbers will be a big boost to the Deputy President which will give him more superiority in votes ahead of the tough Presidential race.
The voters registration process is set to continue for the next three weeks with Kenyans urged to turn out in large numbers.
