No sex until you register to vote, Jubilee MP says

24 February 2016, 13:02

Nairobi - An MP has asked couples to deny their partners who have not registered to vote sex until they do so.

Nyeri Town MP Esther Murugi, as quoted by the Daily Nation has called on women to deny men conjugal rights and food until they register as voters.

Murugi has also asked pastors not to allow followers into their churches unless they produce their national identity cards and the voters cards.

" As women, we have decided that our husbands and sons will not also get food until they register as voters,” she was quoted as saying.

The Standard reports that there is a shocking turnout of potential voters in the registration process that kicked off 9 days ago.

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Regional Co-ordinator for Nyeri, Kirinyaga and Nyandarua counties, John Mwangi, is quoted as saying that only six per cent of the targeted number of new voters had registered in the three regions since the exercise started one week ago.

IEBC intends to register eight million new voters before the next General Election in 2017. Last week, the electoral body kicked off a 30-day campaign to register at least four million voters in the first phase of the exercise.
