Hey uys AWILO LONGOMBA live in the show and the topic today is an Anglican clergyman will stop offering Holy Communion to Christians who have no voter’s card. Canon Walter Okeyo of the Migori Parish said he will do this to fight voter registration apathy in Nyanza. “It will be a condition in my church that you first show me your voter’s card before receiving Holy Communion,” he told a workshop at the Migori Maranatha Conference Centre. Religious leaders The meeting, convened by the Civil Society Organisation (CSO) network, brought together religious leaders, political party officials, youth and women leaders, who were challenged to get residents to register in the new voters roll. Mr Okeyo who declared that he will vote for the draft constitution, told leaders of the mainstream churches to get Kenyans to register as voters instead of “deafening the ears of the people with the No campaigns everyday”. Other participants suggested that women deny men who had not registered their conjugal rights “just to show how serious the matter is”. “We need concerted efforts to realise high voter turnout in the referendum and the 2012 General Election. People’s attitude must be changed through any workable method including denial of conjugal rights,” said ODM official Oloo Odari. Participants were bitter that area MPs were busy following Prime Minister Raila Odinga in his campaigns in other parts of the country and forgetting to get people at the grassroots to register as voters.
