The office of the registrar of political parties has not given details of why some people have been signed to parties without their approval.
Through their social media handle they have written, “the process of onboarding some modules of the Integrated Political Parties Management System (IPPMS) on the E-citizen platform is currently on pilot stage. ORPP will hold consultations with parties and stakeholders to amicably address any concerns received.”
In the subsequent information to the public, they have shared the process one is required to take to resign from a political party.

The information perhaps has been sent to address some of the complaints raised including one by Raila Junior.
They have even made it possible for Kenyans to check which party they have been registered with by visiting their online platform.
Most people believe that since his father is the ODM Leader Raila Odinga, Junior should also pledge allegiance to the party.
But he has not made clear his stand.
However, this has not gone down well with some of his followers. Some have reignited the debate where Junior called out ODM and officials for the poor running of the party.
“Now I understand why you were critical of ODM sometime back,” one Twitter user reacted to Junior’s post.
