The Kenya Muslim Youth Alliance raised concerns over IDs

20 July 2012, 08:37 Steve Wambugu

The Kenya Muslim  Youth Alliance-KMYA  has raised concern over the number of Muslims waiting to have their identification cards(IDs) delivered at the Nakuru registration office.

Addressing journalists at the Nakuru Nyayo Gardens yesterday, KMYA convener Fadhili Musuri said that over 200 muslims have not received their IDs despite having applied for them as early as 2007.

He said that most of them have had to meet "unrealistic" requirements set by registration officers, terming the move as a violation of their rights.

An activist of the national youth bunge association which has been advocating for the  issuance of ids under the slogan "my id my life " ms Fatuma Yusuf said that some muslim youth are at times asked to present title deeds before acquiring ids.

She said that it was the high time the ministry of immigration complied with a recent Ministerial directive to have all those seeking identification cards attended to without requiring them to visit their mother districts.

However, South RiftValley registration co-ordinator Thomas Gekonde dismissed the allegations as saying that his office had put in place stringent measures to ensure  issuance of ids is done fast.

He said that registration officers had been visiting various locations and schools following a ministerial directive to establish mobile registration centers.

He said that it was the right of all Kenyan citizens to be issued with ids and at the same time called on all those encountering problems to liaise with his office for assistance.

The officer said that no one will be discriminated in the process so long as all the necessary requirements are met.
