03 February 2016, 20:48

Nairobi - As many as 300,000 identification cards remain uncollected, the government has said.

Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said in a report on The Standard Wednesday announced that there are a total of 375,963 uncollected identity cards countrywide.

Kibicho who on Tuesday invited those who have been waiting for IDs since before December to get in touch with him, said they should first check with the centres they applied at.

The Rift Valley region has the highest number of uncollected cards at 81,243 followed by Central which has 54,697 uncollected cards.

Capital News reports that Nairobi has 45,083 uncollected cards while Nyanza has 44,699. Eastern has 32,334 uncollected cards while the Coast and Western regions have a total of 27,469 and 22,732 uncollected cards respectively.

The North Eastern region has a significantly lower number of uncollected identity cards at 7,141 while those that remain uncollected at Huduma Centres are 57,583.

The IEBC plans to register eight million more voters; up from the current 14 million registered.

The IEBC target of 22 million registered voters, Hassan said in the report, is due to the fact that the National Registration Bureau had issued a total of 23.8 million ID cards as of December 2014.
