“We must monitor the exercise. Where there are impediments to registration like the absence of kits and unnecessary registration requirements, these must be recorded and communicated in real time. Each day, we must register the maximum number possible. We must not allow the IEBC to get away with mischief,” he said on Facebook.

Raila was also present at the KICC where the voter listing in Nairobi was launched on Monday.
‘There are over 1 million eligible Kenyans who have not registered to vote in Nairobi. It is imperative that as many Kenyans as possible register to express their democratic choice in the forthcoming elections. Take a moment today and pass by your local IEBC registration center with your original ID to ensure your voice is heard on August 8th, 2017,” the CORD leader added.
The month long exercise is expected to have 6 million Kenyans register as voters before the poll in August.
