Western Kenya letting me down, Raila complains

21 February 2016, 09:08 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Western Kenya is letting me down, CORD leader Raila Odinga has said as regards the ongoing voter registration.

The CORD leader is aware of the slow pace in which residents in his backyard Nyanza as well as Western Kenya have taken to the ongoing voter registration process.

So far, reports have indicated as few as 30 people turning up daily in most registration stations in western Kenya, a clear sign of voter apathy.

CORD is looking to raise as many as 4 million new voters in its strongholds in the current campaign but with the ongoing trend, they are likely to fall very much short.

Raila is not happy.

" It is very unfortunate that in our region, clerks wait the whole day without people turning up to register as voters unlike in other regions where a majority have taken up voters cards,” he said.

" The poor attitude towards voter registration is letting me down. Nyanza and western Kenya region have the potential of take me to State House come 2017.

I always say, a general without an army is a civilian. The only way I can become a general is through your votes. Please take advantage of this ongoing exercise and register as voters,” he added.

The voter registration period will take one month and will seek to have those who have previously never voted, as well as those changing their voting stations get on the register.
