Activities in Eldoret town came to a standstill as Jubilee Party aspirants for wards seats in Uasin Gishu County rallied hundreds of local residents to register as voters.
The aspirants put aside their political rivalry and joined hands in urging those who have not yet enlisted as voters to register before the countrywide mass voter registration exercise come to a close on Tuesday next week.
Led by Martha Njeri, Sam Mugo, Kimani Wanjohi and Mildred Wairimu, the aspirants told the residents that there was no way they will get credible leaders after August 8 general election unless they enlist as voters.
They told the residents that they will not able to elect good leaders who will deliver on their mandate unless they register as voters so that they can exercise their democratic rights of choosing leaders of their choice at the ballot.
They expressed concern over the low number of people who are visiting voter registration centres set up by the Independent and Electoral Boundary Commission in various parts of the county.
