Fresh registration waste of funds: ODM Mp

17 April 2014, 16:50 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has been lambasted for planning to register Kenyans afresh, terming the process a waste of funds.

The government has announced plans to register all Kenyans afresh with new identification documents in a process that will cost taxpayers KES 8 billion.

High levels of insecurity as well as a ballooning number of illegal foreigners in the country is the main reason for the move, but the opposition party has termed the move as opulent.

Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi said in a statement that he feels the move to seek fresh registration displays laziness on the government's side as regards fighting insecurity.

He also added that the amount of money set to be spent in the process is too much, considering the current financial difficulties being experienced in the country.

" I find it wasteful that the government is planning to spend all that money on a process that should not even be a priority at this time, he said.

He insisted that the government should deal with corruption that is the main cause of insecurity in the country and not put unnecessary burden on the tax-payer.

" Insecurity in the country is as a result of corruption in the police force and security agencies and the government should instead dedicate its efforts into trying to deal with it, he added.

Currently, the government is struggling with terrorism and the illegal presence of foreign nationals in the country which has led to the current security operation by the police.

In the government's plan, the new ID's will be digitized and biometric in nature.
