Kirinyaga County in mass ID registration drive
Over 1.2 million youths are expected to register for national identity cards in a two-week programme that starts from the 18th of April to the 2nd of May in Kirinyaga County.
Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said the programme is an initiative of the Mount Kenya Foundation Trust and urged youths to register for IDs, adding that the national government depends on the data in distribution of resources.
Speaking to Citizen Digital, Kirinyaga County Commissioner Erastus Ekidor said that over 100,000 youths were expected to register in the set period in the five sub counties, adding that the process would be coordinated by chiefs and registration officers.
Last week Murang’a County launched a 12-day mass identity card registration drive targeting over 16, 000 people in its eight sub counties.
Lack of national identification cards as resulted in low voter registration across the country.
