Bungoma - Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyiynyi has revealed that over 10 000 people in Kanduyi constituency who have attained the age of 18 years and above don’t have identity cards that can enable them to register as voters ahead of 2017 general elections.
Speaking in Bungoma, Wamunyiynyi said that he set up a team to find out how many people do not have IDs in Kanduyi and the results they came up with were alarming.
He called upon Kanduyi residents to ensure that they have identity cards, saying that this will enable them to get jobs in government institutions and also enable the government to know where they came from when seeking jobs.
“There are some places in Nairobi where you cannot go without an identity card such as Kenyatta National Hospital and other government institutions as a result of the recent terrorist attacks that were experienced in Kenya and I think the same should be replicated in Bungoma so that our people can get Ids,” said Wamunyinyi.
He also called upon the Bungoma County Commissioner, Maalim Mohamed to facilitate the registration of his people so they can all get identity cards.
