It is astounding that with less than ten days to go before the end of the voter registration, thousands of Kenyans are yet to take up the all important document that ensures they participate in choosing the people who will lead them for the next five years.
This apathy should worry all those who are aspiring for any elective post. They should be urging, cajoling and persuading people to register as voters instead of just feeding their rallies with promises of things to come.
Those who believe these parties and their leaders have something to offer must register to ensure that they elect into office people they believe will deliver on the issues of most concern to them.
It is also imperative that those who are skeptical of the various alliances and their offerings, also register. It is only through the vote that they can express their disenchantment with the situation. Even a negative vote is better than not voting at all! Kenyans must take back the power that the political elite believes is theirs to squander by registering to vote.
