NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 24- Kiambu County Government has partnered with the National Bureau of Registration of persons to hold a massive National Identity Cards registration across the county.

The move is meant to complement the ongoing voter registration exercise by the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission.

Overview
  • IEBC expect 4 million new voters at the end of the ongoing 30 days registration exercise across the country.
  • The exercise that commenced earlier in the week continues until, “all residents are registered at their respective sub-counties and the mobile centres created by the two entities.”

For one to be eligible voter, IEBC requires a person to have a national identity card or a valid passport.

The drive, steered by Governor William Kabogo aims at registering new entrants and ID replacements since most, “Kiambu residents either cannot access or are denied various services for lack of IDs.”

The county and the Bureau have devised a mechanism where resident will get their ID cards within two weeks from the date of application and the collection points will be sub-county Registration of person’s offices.

“The registration of IDs is free of charge and any form of corruption at the registration centres should be reported to the security officers present throughout the exercise,” noted Sammy Onyango, Chief of staff Kiambu County.

The exercise that commenced earlier in the week continues until, “all residents are registered at their respective sub-counties and the mobile centres created by the two entities.”

The applicants are expected to turn up with the required documentation for verification and ease of registration.

“We are doing fresh applications and lost IDs replacements. Those applying should bring parents or guardians ID, birth certificates or school leaving certificates to show their dates of birth,” Onyango pointed out.

The area MCA’s and MPs have also mobilized the residents to take advantage of the mobile exercise.
