Council of Governors Chairman who is also the Meru County Governor Peter Munya has reprimanded residents who have transferred their votes to other constituencies and counties saying they were enemies of development.
While calling on residents to register in large numbers ahead of Tuesday deadline the county boss said some residents were been offered as little as Sh.200 to transfer from the region.
He said the county has not met the target set by the electoral body IEBC with North Imenti leading in the county with high voter registration at 19,000 representing 84 per cent of the target while Igembe central was the least with only 48 per cent enlisted so far.
He added that the law allows for voluntary transfer if you want to move from one constituency or county to another and it doesn’t allow giving people inducements to move from one constituency to another because it’s criminal.
He urged all the residents to register as votes because voter registration is the only way to contribute to the development as a mwananchi.
He spoke at Muthara in Tigania East Sub County which has only registered 22,000 votes against the target of 28,000 new voters with 15,000 being registered where he checked his name in the voter register.
