MVITA ODM parliamentary hopeful Abdulswamad Nassir has embarked on a door-to-door voter registration awareness campaign in Mombasa.
He is urging Coast residents to register in large numbers if they are determined to realise real change. "I am very concerned because there are only five days left for the exercise to end and Coast is still one of the regions that has had the lowest turnout," he said.
On Wednesday, he made various stopovers within the Mvita constituency and personally talked to residents convincing them to register as voters.
He also preached peace saying it is the foundation of development and telling voters to co-exist amicably because "we need each other even after the elections".
He was accompanied by Mwembe Tayari hawkers chairman Anthony Gakumi, county representative hopefuls Abubakar Rashid and Zainab Swaleh and women representative aspirant Asha Hussein.
IEBC statistics on voter registration indicate that only 204,795 out an estimated voting population of 437,933 in Mombasa had registered as voters by December 8, a figure that culminates to only 46 per cent.
