The government has been urged to allocate the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) enough resources to enable it prepare for next year’s General Election.
Anglican Church of Kenya archbishop Jackson ole Sapit said government should address financial shortages at the electoral agency.
“We don’t want a last minute rush in preparations for elections for it may result in ill-preparedness.
So we are urging the government to move with speed and allocate the commission more funds to carry out its mandate,” said Sapit.
Civic education Speaking at ACK church in Kericho town yesterday, the archbishop cited the voter registration which, he said, could not have been extended due to limited resources.
“We hear very few people were enlisted as voters in the just concluded exercise.
We therefore appeal for the extension of the exercise so that more people register as voters,” he added.
The ACK archbishop at the same time revealed that the National Council of Churches of Kenya will soon roll out a civic education programme across the country.
