Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has warned residents without voters’ card that they will not access services at county offices.
The Governor said residents seeking help from his office will have to prove they are enlisted as voters before accessing services.
“I want to make it clear that from today anyone seeking audience with me will have to produce two documents, an ID and the voter’s card without which don’t dare come,” Kabogo said.
Making the announcement on Tuesday in Kiambu town, the Governor defended the move saying that it will push potential voters to get enlisted during the on-going mass voter registration countrywide.
At the same time, he said his government has availed 72 vehicles to ease voter registration in far-flung areas across the county during the month-long exercise.
“All county government vehicles will be used to ferry the sick, elderly and the vulnerable to voter registration centres. We are not leaving anything to chance,” Kabogo noted.
Singling out the successes of Biashara Fund, the Governor urged the youth; women and people living with disabilities to get the documents to enable them access the vital funds for self-empowerment.
Separately, aspiring Kiambu Governor Dr. James Nyoro has warned youths against being used by politicians to disrupt peace.
The aspirant instead advised young people across the country to champion for peace ahead of the August 8 elections, regretting that they often fall prey to unscrupulous politicians out to fulfil their selfish interests during electioneering period.
“Our young people should remain peaceful and keep off politicians who instigate and propagate violent acts,” he said.
Nyoro also urged aspirants to engage in issue based politics, instead of engaging in smear campaigns to smear their opponents. “It is important for us as politicians to engage in issue based campaigns and not mere propaganda,” he stressed.
Nyoro, alongside real estate tycoon David Gakuyo, Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu and businesswoman Njoki Gathendu have expressed interest to unseat the incumbent governor, William Kabogo.
