Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka has urged Kenyans to take voter registration seriously and register in large numbers. He said registering as voters will enable Kenyans exercise their democratic rights to determine the country's destiny by electing leaders of their choice.
Kalonzo asked people to collect their ID cards following reports of many uncollected ID's at the registrar offices. "Kenya is undergoing a complete change and will be a new transformed country after the next general elections, particularly with the implementation of the new constitution," he said.
The VP was speaking at the African Gospel Church in Karen, Nairobi where he officiated over the groundbreaking ceremony of the new church complex.
Kalonzo appealed to leaders to support government decisions to tackle insecurity and restore public confidence, order and stability in troubled spots.
"We as a government have taken decisive measure to deal with criminals and counter insecurity situation in parts of the country, we cannot allow this nation to go down the drain because of criminal elements threatening the country's peace," he said.
Kalonzo urged Kenyans to speak freely on matters affecting them including. "Under the new constitution you are allowed to express yourselves freely. If you feel there are legislations that may threaten family values, speak out and Parliament will also consider amendments to such bills," he added. Present was Terry Duncan, the director of World Gospel Mission.
