Last year, chaos erupted when a Kenyan user took to Twitter and revealed millions of Kenyans had been registered to political parties without their knowledge, this prompted a directive from the Data Protection Commissioner’s office requiring the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties to deregister all Kenyans who had been erroneously registered to the political parties.
This prompted the ORPP to launch its services on eCitizen three months ago, effectively giving all Kenyans the authority to manage their individual affiliations with political parties.
