Turn out and register as voters in numbers, Ongwae urges

Kisii Governor James Ongwae has urged residents to turn out in large numbers and register as voters in the ongoing Mass Voter Registration exercise.

Addressing residents during an inspection tour of development projects in Bomachoge Borabu Sub County, the Governor noted that only through registration as voters could they exercise their constitutional right of electing leaders of their choice.

Speaking at Mariba in Magenche ward, Governor Ongwae told residents to take advantage of the one-month window offered by the Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to enlist as voters.

“We must mobilize every eligible voter to register with IEBC during this period. Registering as a voter enables us to elect or nominate leaders of our choice. It also gives us the moral authority to hold leaders accountable,” said Ongwae.

He was flanked by MCAs Samwel Onuko (Boochi Borabu), Timothy Ogugu (Magenche), George Bibabo (Bokimonge) and Koina Onyancha (Bombaba Borabu).

IEBC targets to register a total of 198,678 voters including those who didn’t register from 2012 to 2016; Those who recently attained the majority age of 18 years and have acquired the national ID and those who wish to update their registration details/transfer polling stations.

“I urge IEBC to step up the voter education programme to ensure all Kisii residents are sensitized on the need to register and actually vote,” he added.

On Tuesday, IEBC Nyanza South Regional coordinator Mrs. Sara Ogaro convened a meeting of stakeholders including the County Commissioner Samwel Njora and departmental heads. Governor Ongwae graced the occasion.

He pledged to collaborate with IEBC and the National Government to help sensitize residents on the need to register.

The Department of Civil registration proposed to use chiefs and their assistants to distribute IDs lying uncollected in various offices across the county.
