ODM wants IEBC to prevent 'voter importation'

16 February 2016, 10:34 Arap Yego

Nairobi - A Nairobi Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) politician wants the country's electoral body to ensure that there is transparency in the voter registration process.

The former Makadara MP, Reuben Ndolo said Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials must be vigilant to guard against what he termed as voter importation.

Speaking to News24, Ndolo raised concern that some politicians who are eyeing various seats in Nairobi, may attempt to transport voters from nearby counties and register them in city to increase their chances of being elected.

"We know some leaders, especially those aligned to Jubilee, will try to bring in new voters to enlist in the city from other counties. We want IEBC and concerned authorities to stop such plans," said Ndolo.

The MP who spoke after conducting several voter registration sensitization campaigns in his former Makadara constituency, asked members of the public to report any large group of unknown people they see attempting to register as voters.

"We have Nyumba Kumi members in Makadara Constituency and other areas in the city. The chairmen of these groups should assist us establish whether the people registering themselves are residents," he said, after being asked what method will be used to know who is a stranger and who is not.

Ndolo at the same time appealed to Nairobi County residents who do not have voter's cards to make sure they get the vital document.

"Our opponents in Jubilee are not happy that our party leader Raila Odinga won in 2017 in the County. They are not happy that an ODM member is the Governor of Nairobi. They will try to turn the tables; we should protect the two leaders by registering in our numbers," he said.

The 30-day mass voter registration exercise by IEBC that started Monday presents an opportunity for more eligible Kenyans to be included in the voters' roll and subsequently have a say in determining the future of Kenya.
