Eldoret East MP Margaret Kamar has faulted the government for failing to carry out extensive voter education campaigns in the North Rift region.
Speaking after registering as a voter in her constituency yesterday, Kamar said she was concerned because with less than ten days to go, almost all constituencies in the region have registered less that 50 percent of the projected numbers.
She blamed the Ministry of Justice for voter registration apathy being witnessed in various parts of the country saying they had done little in facilitation of civic education.
She also faulted the decision by IEBC to mostly use the media to sensitize the public saying it was not effective because many Kenyans in rural areas do not have access to these modern forms of media. She said government should instead hire youth who can move village to village conducting voter education.
