Justice Minister Eugene Wamalwa has said that the much awaited voter registration will kick in September.

Wamalwa said after the delivery of Biometric equipments from Canada, the exercise is set to begin in September which will be conducted by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

He said the Government of Canada has agreed to ensure all equipments are delivered on time in order to start the exercise.

The minister urged the youths who have not taken their Identity Cards to do so immediately in order to be ready to acquire the voter’s card.

“The cabinet has approved all those who have attained age of registration of IDs to do so in order to be able to participate in the next general elections,” he added.

The minister was accompanied by Special Programmes Minsiter Esther Murugi, nominated Musikari Kombo and former MP Kalembe Ndile.

Kombo urged the youths to shun violence in this electioneering period adding that the young people should not accept to be misused by the politicians.

“Don’t let youths misuse you. Why can’t they misuse their own children,” he added.

Wamalwa said they will forge alliance with DPM Uhuru Kenyatta similar to the one which was forged by Kijana Wamalwa and Mwai Kibaki prior to year 2002 general polls.
