Lead­ers should urge vot­ers to reg­is­ter not whine

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The IEBC in Fe­bru­ary pro­vided for a win­dow for vot­ers to reg­is­ter across the coun­try.The turnout was dis­mal. Some politi­cians are now say­ing the gov­ern­ment is favour­ing some re­gions. The truth of the mat­ter is that both the rul­ing and op­po­si­tion par­ties have the abil­ity to urge their vot­ers to reg­is­ter as vot­ers.The gov­ern­ment has put up Huduma Cen­tres in all ma­jor towns to over­see the smooth run­ning of reg­is­tra­tion. Reg­is­tra­tion is also on­go­ing in IEBC of­fices. Lead­ers should en­cour­age their vot­ers to reg­is­ter, in­stead of whin­ing.
