Kisumu Governor Prof Anyang’ Nyong’o has given all county workers two days off to go and mobilize for voter listing.

The Governor who met the county executive and senior managers on Monday said the workers are expected to go to their villages and do door to door mobilization.

According to the Governor, the exercise will be supervised by Ward Administrators across the 35 wards, in collaboration with the chiefs.

The county staffs will be expected to move within the villages, mobilize those without identity cards to get them, and coordinate with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) clerks to have them register as voters.

The Governor’s move comes amid outcry over poor voter listing in the area ahead of the final stretch of the mass voter registration.

“The numbers are disappointing. Our people must come out and register as voters,” said Nyong’o.

He added: “Everyone of us here come from somewhere, therefore. Therefore, we have to match like an army back to our villages. By the end of this week, we should see a better result than this.”

The Governor was accompanied by his Deputy Dr Matthew Owili and County Assembly Speaker, Elisha Oraro.

He noted that it is only through proper voter listing that Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga can be assured of victory in the August 9, presidential election.
