Jubilee launching membership smart card

Jubilee Party

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto are leading the Jubilee Party in launching of the membership smart card at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani in Nairobi ahead of the 2017 polls.

The smart card will be used to access polling stations by party members, verified and authenticated using a smart phone before one can vote.

In an earlier interview with Citizen TV, Jubilee Party Secretariat, headed by former Cabinet Minister, Raphael Tuju, said that the electronic membership card will go a long way in ensuring transparency during the nomination process.

According to Tuju, the party has already started training officers on how to use technology in the nomination process.

Each card, he said, has a bar code for identification and the officers in charge of nominations will use bar code readers to conduct the exercise.

The party also said that it has made the card affordable to members with the one-off fee being capped at Ksh 20.

Once the bar code has been scanned, it will be input into the system to ensure that each member votes only once.

Among those in attendance are Jubilee allied governors, senators, MPs as well as MCAs as well as party’s interim officials and aspirants.

Earlier this week, Deputy President William Ruto held meetings with Jubilee leaders urging them to mobilize their supporters to register as Jubilee Party members ahead of the launch.

The party’s high-powered re-election campaign strategy dubbed “Tuko Pamoja” which involves massive registration of members is also set to be launched at the party’s headquarters in Nairobi.
