Voter registration, not Jubilee CORD's biggest problem ahead of 2017

Nairobi - Forget the Jubilee Coalition, lack of voters registering in their strongholds is the CORD Coalition's biggest problem.
CORD principals Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula and Kalonzo Musyoka are aware that the areas they claim to be their strongholds are not active as far as voter registration and that they should do something about it.
According to a CORD insider, a forensic report on the matter has been handed to the CORD leaders who are aware of the paucity in voter registration in their regions.
" The CORD leaders know that they are struggling to have voters registering in their regions and it is not about the IEBC. General voter apathy is a problem," the source stated.
Apparently, the CORD leadership is in the know on the matter and thus have gone out to ensure that there is nothing that limits voter registration.
" The truth is that the attack on the IEBC is informed by the poor voting patters in their region and they are aware," the source added.
This comes just a day after the campaign to register at least four
million new voters in 30 days kicked off with the IEBC asking Kenyans to
turn out in large numbers for the exercise.
CORD Governors and their deputies had earlier on raised issues with the voter registration exercise being conducted by IEBC.
In a statement after a two-day meeting in Kisumu, the Governors said
the current voter registration exercise is skewed and compromised in
favour of Jubilee through unequal and unfair distribution of BVR kits.
