Karen Nyamu's Sincere Appeal To Kenyans Sparks Reactions Online

Today is the fifth day since the Independent Electoral age Boundaries Commission (IEBC) rolled out mass voter registration across the country. According to the Commission's chairman Wafula Chebukati, the one-month long process is targeting over 6 million new voters, larger percentage being youths who will be exercising their democratic duties at the ballot for the first time in next year's elections. 

On this, many politicians and different organizations have taken the responsibility to appeal to those who have not yet registered as voters to do so. Among those who have taken the step to make this appeal is Nairobi based aspiring politician and lawyer Karen Nyamu. 

Taking to her Instagram page, Karen lamented that many people are reluctant to get registered, citing the Constitution as inconsequential. She asked those who are qualified but have not registered to do so. Based on the problems Kenyans are facing, like high cost of living, poor healthcare, lack of proper development and such, some told her that even voting they will not vote on the election day.
