This is a very tricky law indeed! I can foresee a few communities that have people spread all over the country still being able to form a party (read Kikuyu, Luo & Luyha)
But on another note, I think it should have remained a right for any individual to form a party without making it so hard… 1000 people from majority of the counties? That’s an uphill task. Does that mean everyone has to register to a certain party too? because i can imagine right now for the right price, most people would provide the signature for a party.
There are some laws that are being passed with good intentions, but to police them would be a nightmare. And this I believe would be one of them.
