Matiang’i Orders County Commissioners To Track Down Owners Of 52,000 Uncollected IDs In Nyanza


Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i has ordered  Nyanza Region County commissioners to track down owners of the 52,000 uncollected identification cards.

Dr. Matiang’i has further advised chiefs and their assistant to ensure that those who have attained the age of 18 years and do not have identity cards get them.

Speaking during the operationalization of the newly formed Central Nyakach division in Kisumu county, Dr. Matiang’i announced that  IEBC is going to roll out the second phase of voters registration and all uncollected cards should reach the owners prior before the exercise.

“Nyanza alone we have 52,000 uncollected Identification cards from the offices of county and sub county headquarters, and chief’s offices. I want county commissioners because they are all present, these ID cards must be given to their owners before we start voters registration in January,” said Dr. Matiang’i.

Dr. Matiang’i further retaliated that there will be no Christmas break for all security officers as part of efforts to keep the country safe.


The CS directed the officials to remain on duty and coordinate various activities that will keep the country safe.

“As I had said yesterday, I am appealing to you security officers, you know we cannot break for holiday. Our role is to ensure the citizens have enough security. The decision is a directive by the president,” added Matiang’i.

He said all security agents are ordered to be on high alert over the festive season bearing in mind insecurity issues within the neighbouring countries.

CS Matiang’i also called on political aspirants to exercise tolerance and maintain peace during their campaign and even during election time without inciting the citizens or causing chaos.

Central Nyakach today received its new  assistant sub county commissioner Abdimalik Abdulahi.
