Nakuru County leaders have come together to mobilize residents to register as voters in large numbers and hit a one million mark.
Led by Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua, the leaders who launched the drive at Afraha Stadium on
Tuesday morning. The leaders called on residents who have not registered to come out in large numbers and to make sure that the Jubilee government retains the seat in the General elections.
“We must make sure that we all register to achieve the one million mark,” said Governor Mbugua during the launch.
Other leaders who were there at the launch were Deputy Governor Joseph Ruto and Nakuru East MP David Gikaria. Other leaders present were Mwamba Kinyanjui, Victor Ngatia and Wilson Leitich who are parliamentary aspirants among other leaders.
However, it was the Nakuru County Speaker and senatorial aspirant Susan Kihika who stole the show.
In a convoy of fully branded vehicles, including a truck and a minibus, Susan Kihika rode into Afraha Stadium in style why she almost brought the proceedings to a halt. Kihika was accompanied by some of her supporters who were also branded in Jubilee T-shirts and caps who spent the time talking to residents on the importance of registering as voters.
Susan Kihika was among the leaders who addressed the residents at several stops in Nakuru Town as the huge convoy snaked its way from Afraha Stadium through Oginga Odinga Street and then Kenyatta Avenue. The last stop in town was at KFA round before she left for Molo on a similar mission.
“We need to register as many voters as possible. Everyone needs to exercise their democratic right by voting. We need to support the Jubilee government so that we can give them a chance to finish the many development projects they have initiated,” said Susan Kihika to the residents.
