MP wants ID card registration moved to counties

17 February 2016, 15:00 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Kiminini MP, Chris Wamalwa is pushing to have the registration and processing of Identification Cards (IDs) moved from the head office in Nairobi to the counties.

Wamalwa, who is set to move a motion in Parliament to compel the government to decentralize the acquisition of IDs, argues that the devolved governance and public services including birth certificates, voters’ cards, passports and ID card applications, among others, was to relieve residents from difficulties of accessing basic services.

“…noting that currently all registration of national identity cards only happen at one centre in Nairobi, cognizant of the fact that this delays the acquisition of identity cards, thus, denying Kenyans their right to employment, ability to vote, access to public funds like Uwezo Fund and other crucial services,” reads part of the motion.

Wamalwa points out that the decentralization of ID cards registration to counties will not only expedite the process but also allow many Kenyans to access public services promptly.

His motion comes at a time when the electoral commission is conducting a one-month registration of new voters to participate next year’s August general election.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission intends to register over 4 million new voters in the ongoing exercise.

However, concern has been raised over the rising number of uncollected IDs resulting from the applicants’ failure to pick them at their nearest local administrative centres.
