Kenya: Kiambu Lobby Starts Voters Campaign

A lobby group in Kiambu Mururumo business community have started a door-to-door campaign to urge people to vote. The group has more than 30,000 registered members from Nairobi and Central provinces.

"The youth are used to campaign for aspirants yet most of them do not have voter or ID cards. We saw the need to go door-to-door and educate them, doing a massive campaign on participation of elections," said the group's chair Kaleb Warari.

He was speaking to Kasarani members at Kasarani. Kikuyu Council of Elders chair Wachira Kiago said it is the mandate of leaders to educate voters.

Paul Kabeu of Njepa Enterprises said they have organised a launch dubbed Mururumo na Uhuru Mashinani in Juja on Friday. "We want this launch to be attended fully to reach out to as many people as possible at the grassroot level," he said.
