The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has said that the voter registration exercise will end on November 2nd will not be extended.

IEBC Commissioner Francis Wanderi said the commission has no funds that will be used to run the process for that extended tenure.

Wanderi urged Kenyans who are eligible and have not registered to use the remaining days to register, saying they have dispatched kits to universities and colleges where many students have not registered as voters.

He said there has been a low turnout for the last three weeks since the exercise began on October 4, but it has partially improved this last week.

Wanderi said while on his tour in Kericho county monitoring the registration exercise.

Currently, 28 per cent of the targeted population has registered in Kericho County, with the Commission expecting to hit 35 per cent by the end of the exercise.

The exercise comes to an end on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, and so far IEBC has registered 17 per cent of the targeted 4.5 million new voters.
