Kidero: Review how people are registered

03 June 2013, 08:02 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has called for a review of how people are registered in Kenya.

In his speech during 50th Madaraka Day celebrations at Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi, Kidero said that Kenyans living in Nairobi are registered in their identification cards based on their places of origin and not where they stay.

“Such registration ends up with 4 million immigrants living in a city they do not feel they belong to, as such they do not think of themselves as one but as many from different places,” he said.

He urged for the review of the registration so that people are identified with where they live and not where their parents came.

“This will promote integration, nationhood and peaceful cohesion. Promoting these tenets will ensure that we tackle our problems especially in Nairobi as a consolidated force of Kenyans,” said Kidero.

Kidero pointed out that if this can be done in Nairobi, then the whole country will follow in promoting integration.

On devolution, Kidero said Kenya is currently undergoing transition which cannot be achieved without going through problems.

“To reap the harvest that we have sowed there must be a period of toil, let us not see devolution as too difficult o implement but as an avenue to take us all to a brighter and more prosperous future,” he said.

He said that such occasion like Madaraka Day reminds Kenyans that nothing comes easy.

“No challenge whether it is implementing the constitution or devolution can be difficult if we think and act as one people, let us remove structures that divide us and replace them with the ones that unite us,” he urged.
