In just a day to the 14th deadline of voter registration, residents living in remote villages of Masol in Pokot central along the west pokot Turkana border are working round the clock to ensure that recently released Ids for newly applied are getting to the owners within the shortest time possible.
One chief Mr Robert Loyotuman –Masol location is holding public barazas and issuing identification cards to the owners and in same process ensuring that they register as voters.
The chief however says the challenges they face are many due to the terrain and the nomadic nature of the people who move on from time to time and so such tracking of the location is vital to ensure they get the Ids.
Loyotuman adds that a special consideration should be given to such areas along volatile borders where insecurity has derailed the process of voter registration.
He adds that several people have not been reached and that if the IEBC considers such areas with speciality even for a week, then they would be able to reach the target.
The Jubilee secretariat chair person west pokot Mr Johnson Mukelima who applauded the chiefs for recommendable job, appealed to the IEBC to extend the registration time.
The voter registration which is ending tomorrow is likely to lock out thousands of pastoralists.
And that only extension by IEBC would be crucial as the remote villages in pokot are faced with drought and insecurity which needs extension.
Mukelima adds that despite the voter mobilization in west pokot county, the target is way below average.
