Chiefs, given one month ultimatum to identify youths without IDs

14 March 2016, 17:44 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Chiefs and their assistants in Bungoma County have been instructed to identify youths aged 18 years and above who do not have Identification Cards (IDs) and ensure they get the important document.

Speaking when he issued 41 motorbikes to chiefs in his office, Bungoma County Commissioner Maalim Mohammed said it was the responsibility of government to ensure all Kenyans get IDs.

He told chiefs that they have one month to identify and bring onboard people who qualify to acquire the identification document but do not have.

Mohammed further directed chiefs to assist office of registrar to deliver processed cards to applicants, adding that over 14,000 IDs were still uncollected and were gathering dust at different registration centers in the County.

He said he was working closely with the area Registrar of Persons in order to ensure the identification documents reach their rightful owners.

On illicit brews, Mohamed said at least 140,000 litres of the liquor was impounded last year and 17,000 brewers and consumers arraigned in court.

Mohammed further revealed that the government got KES 10 million from fines from illicit brews related cases and reminded chiefs that the responsibility of stamping out the menace was still their mandate.
