As the High Court extends the mass voter registration by two days, Moyale Sub County has so far registered highest number of voters in the county, according to IEBC officials.

Speaking to Radio Jangwani Sakuu Constituency IEBC Co-ordinator Dulacha Boru said, yesterday alone they registered 433 people as hundreds rushed to registration centres across the constituency to beat the February 14 deadline set by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
“Typically, our people prefer the last-minute rush. We have witnessed quite high numbers from yesterday and the numbers are significantly higher today, which is very different from the first two weeks,” he said.
In Laisamis, residents blamed their last-minute rush to ravaging drought in the sub-county.However, North Horr Sub County saw a low turnout of people registering as ravaging drought deepens.
Justice Enock Chacha stopped IEBC from closing the registration pending the determination of a suit filed by activist Okiya Omtatah.
