Crash programme on voter education launched

12 February 2013, 16:06

Nairobi - Daily Nation reports the Independent Election and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and other stakeholders have launched a crash programme on voter education to ensure that voters are aware of the election dynamics.

The launch by the Ministry of Justice, IEBC, Transition Authority and religious bodies comes against a backdrop of the Kenya Human Rights Commission report released on Monday that indicates over 50 per cent of Kenyans do not understand devolution, and roles of governors, senators and other elective positions under the Constitution.

Justice minister Eugene Wamalwa said it would be a difficult task for Kenyans to learn how to fill in the six ballots, saying the Ministry had prepared posters and brochures on ballot marking and how to distinguish various positions, and would be distributed to churches and mosques, where Kenyans could easily access them.
