U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec will join Kenyan youth at the launch of niShowPower, a new youth voter registration and information campaign, at the University of Nairobi’s Chancellor’s Court.
The campaign will kick off with a free concert from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Sunday, May 15. Top Kenyan artists Dela, Juliani, Khaligraph Jones, Octopizzo, Sarabi, and Sauti Sol will play free of charge to support this initiative. Over 4,000 youth are expected to attend.
niShowPower (“show me your power”) encourages Kenyan young people to take part in their democracy by registering to vote and pledging to refrain from violence.
Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials will be at the concert venue to register voters from Nairobi’s 17 constituencies. Kenyans who wish to register must bring a valid national ID with them to the event.
