They shared screen shots of their 'membership' on Facebook expressing dismay of how callous political parties and politicians can be in their quest to rise to power.
President Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee party seem to be the greatest culprit here with a majority of the people saying they have been listed as members of the party without their knowledge.
One can only be a member of one political party at a time in Kenyan thus can only be allowed to participate in the nominations of that party only.
Whereas one has a right to belong to any party, it is unlawful to steal someones's personal details and register them without their knowledge.
But one can fill a form and resign from a political party.
The shocking revelations comes just weeks ahead of party nominations which are likely to be hotly contested.
Paul Juma : I've checked mine, and shocked to learn that I am a member of Farmer's Party. I've never registered as a member of ANY political party!
Livingstone Mwanga: Like mine it's showing that I belong to Empowerment political party. Have never registered any political party
Jeremiah Kiplang'at: Goodness. Like my last name has betrayed me here. The fact that I come from a beautiful village called Kobelgoor in Cheptalal Location, Bomet County doesn't mean I should automatically become a Jubilee Party member nor a URP member as this shows. I don't know how my name and ID details found its way in URP/ Jubilee database. I'm not a member of any political party.
