Murang'a leaders to steer ID cards registration in the county

Murang’a County has set a 12-day mass Identification Cards registration drive exercise that targets over 16,000 people in its eight Sub Counties. The exercise, which is set to kick off on April 18th, will be steered by local administrators and elected leaders.

The process aims at increasing the number of adults in Murang’a with ID cards which currently stands at 30 percent of the county’s population.

The process, which will be led by the County Commissioner, Ms. Kula Hache, targets areas with high population of unregistered voters.

Hache says since 2013, there has been a downward trend in the uptake of identity cards which has affected the social and economic development in the area.

The process comes two months after Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) conducted a massive registration of voters that was characterised by very low turnout largely attributed to lack of ID cards.
