IEBC raises concern over voter registration in Middle East

03 February 2015, 19:00 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The practice of employers retaining their employees’ passports in the Middle East will pose a great challenge in the registration of Kenyan voters in the diaspora.

According to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Issack Hassan, the commission will have to use other avenues to address the issue. 

"This is a challenge which we will have to address with parliament," he said when he met and held discussions with the outgoing Kenyan Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the capital Abu Dhabi.

There are currently over 30,000 Kenyans in the UAE and the number is expected to hit 100,000 by the end of the year.
