Jubilee targeting 4 million new voters in mass voter registration

15 February 2016, 09:42 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - President Uhuru Kenyatta has asked his supporters to register as voters in the mass voter registration exercise that kicks off Monday ahead of the 2017 general elections.

Speaking at Nanyuki stadium during homecoming ceremony for Devolution Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri, Uhuru also called for introduction of mobile registration offices.

He also expressed concern over delayed issuance of identification cards to youths.

“We should have a system that allows every citizen to get an ID and register as a voter at any place in the country,” he added.

He was accompanied by more than 50 MPs led by leader of majority Aden Duale and 10 Cabinet Secretaries.

Duale said they were aiming at registering over 4 million new voters in Jubilee coalition strongholds.

“In last elections we had close to seven million votes. Now we want to double that figure so that in 2017 we can win by a bigger margin and show CORD that Kenyans want Jubilee,” said Duale.

Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery said he will defend the government.

“I will not fear to play politics and protect the government from malicious information,” said Nkaissery.

His sentiments were echoed by the Devolution CS, Mwangi Kiunjuri who said the opposition was taking advantage of the Cabinet Secretaries’ silence.

“The opposition is spreading lies that the government is not working just because Cabinet Secretaries are not responding to them. It is time we responded to them even on political matters,” said Kiunjuri.

He added that the Secretaries will lead President Uhuru’s re-election campaign from February next year.
