Voter registration has not started in some stations at SEGERO and Barsombe ward in Uasin Gishu. Kapng'etuny station does not have enough computers while Segero centre and Segero primary have been merged into one registration centre.

The director of Betaland Entreprises, Thomas Kering, said the merge has confused residents as no reason was forwarded. "The clerks came with a CPU and the monitor was missing prompting people to go back home," Kering said.

He also said the equipments are stored at a remote place with no security and inaccessible roads. Another voter Jona Buruko asked the IEBC to intervene because.

"I came on Monday to register at Kapng'etuny but we were told to wait because there was no solar to charge the machines. Nothing is going on today," Buruko said.
