Nyeri - A lobby group has launched massive registration of eight million voters in Central Kenya in bid to ensure President Uhuru Kenyatta is re-elected in 2017.
The initiative dubbed 'Jitokeze' (Get out) is also targeting the youth, mostly school leavers.
The group led by politician Wachira Keen plans to conduct a door-to-door campaign to ensure those who have attained the age of 18 years get Identity cards and also register as voters.

“We want to increase our number of voters. We are targeting to have more than eight million voters in Mount Kenya region,” said Keen after a four-hour meeting at Outspan Hotel.
In regard to corruption issues in Jubilee government, the group asked parliamentarians to give the President Uhuru Kenyatta a chance to work.
“The MPs should not join hands with opposition in fighting the President since they were elected on a platform of the Jubilee Government. If you have issues with the President, the doors of State House are open instead of going to the media,” said Keen.
