IEBC registers 3 voters in a span of 4 months

13 August 2014, 09:14 Ken Wekesa

Tana River - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has expressed dismay in the ongoing voter registration in Galole constituency, Tana River County.

Galole Constituency Election Coordinator, Hillary Kombe said the Commission has only registered three voters in a span of four months since the launch of the exercise in the region.

Kombe said he has been forced to look for the voters at the office of Registrar of Persons with an aim of registering those who have just received their national Identification Cards.

“The low turn out is alarming; am forced to physically go through the Registrar of Persons' office but still the targeted group are not availing themselves for the registration,” said Kombe.

The Coordinator said he conducted a voter registration campaign and education in the Constituency.

"I also worked with the administrators during the voter education period, including the Chief and the Village Elders, before the exercise kicked off on April 15, 2014." added Kombe.

He noted that the exercise was aimed at cleaning the register in a move aimed at removing the names of dead voters.

Kombe said he was worried by the lack of interest by the people of Galole and insisted that the IEBC officials in the area will continue with the exercise in the specified time, urging the residents to participate.

The low turn out was experienced amid CORD's push for the disbandment of the IEBC.
