Majority of births/deaths go unrecorded in Kenya

13 August 2014, 18:34 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Majority of births and deaths in Kenya go unrecorded, according to a report released by the government.

According to cabinet secretary in-charge of interior Joseph Ole Lenku, most births and deaths are not recorded and thus the government is preparing a rescue situation to ensure all are in order in the next three months.

He said that in 2013, 834,847 births were registered out of 1,434,531 births while of the 400,679 deaths that occurred, only 189,381 were registered.

" To correct the anomaly, the government has as a matter of urgency, decided to embark on a mop up registration exercise to ensure that all persons resident in Kenya who were not previously registered are registered and their data captured in the national population register, he said Wednesday in Nairobi.

He was speaking during the launch of the Rapid Results Initiative RRI at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

He also ordered all County Commissioners to ensure that their register is adequately filled in the next three months to ensure that the process is fulfilled.

" They are tasked with ensuring that the process is completed and done in an adequate manner. They must also bring to book all other relevant information missing, he added.

Ole Lenku also said that the information will be used to help out in the new online registration system the government is setting up.
