ODM: Jubilee delaying issuance of IDs in CORD strongholds

30 December 2015, 18:09 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has accused Jubilee government of deliberately delaying the issuance of national identity cards in opposition strongholds ahead of 2017 general election.

ODM now claims that Kenyans applying for the document from its strongholds are being forced to wait for long unlike their counterparts from Jubilee strongholds.

Nakuru ODM chairman, Daniel Ambale said that some applicants are forced to re-apply for identity cards more than twice without success.

Speaking Wednesday when he launched a voter registration sensitization exercise targeting ODM members in Nakuru, Ambale said that Jubilee is using the delays as the strategy to beat CORD in 2017.

"Jubilee is the government and they are in charge of all government resources which they have decided to use to frustrate the issuance of IDs in CORDs strongholds," said Ambale.

"They know that without IDs our people cannot register as voters and that is what they want to apply in beating us in 2017," he added.

"Can Jubilee government explain how people in its strongholds are getting the identity cards in time and quickly while other people are forced to wait for months before getting it?" he posed.
