Following the low voter registration turnout ahead of the August general elections which saw the IEBC only register about 1.5 million new voters instead of the 6 million targeted figure last year, IEBC can now take a sigh of relief after the youth ambassador famed as Octopizzo, decided to wholeheartedly collaborate with the election body in mobilizing the unregistered youths to avail them for registration.
Octopizzo who is formally known as Henry Ohanga is reported to have had paid his visit to Chebukati's office on Wednesday where he gave his words and declared his support to the IEBC concerning the ongoing exercise aimed at the upcoming general polls.
While responding to this effort made by Octopizzo, the IEBC could not hide their gratitude as they hope that it will help in increasing the number of the registered youths across the country. Strategically, the collaboration will primarily involve the voter education among the young people with the view of activating the youth's participation on the Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration exercise. Is it too late for the IEBC to meet their target?
