The Government intends to shorten the period of issuance of National Identity Cards to 21 days.
Speaking in Moyale One Stop Border on Friday, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kindiki Kithure directed the National Registration Bureau to shorten the process to avoid delays to the young people in the larger Northern Kenya.
“No more inordinate delays to our young people in our border county of Marsabit and the larger Northern Kenya who have had to wait for years to get Identity cards,” said Interior CS Kithure Kindiki.
CS Kindiki said the government was on course to strengthen the capacity of our customs border post at Moyale one stop border to facilitate trade between Kenya and Ethiopia as we enhance border patrols to seal all loop holes of illegal trade and human trafficking.
The CS was accompanied by the DIG Noor Gabow, GSU Commandant Douglas Kanja, Marsabit Governor Mohammud Ali and the County Security Team.
