The National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) has embarked on a nationwide exercise to issue National IDs to persons whose cards are ready but have not been picked.
In a letter that has been seen by our reporter, the national ID issuance exercise will be conducted at the sub county level, in all districts in the country for a period of 15 days starting November 23rd, 2020 until December 7th, 2020.
Members of the public who registered but have not received their national IDs have been encouraged to check for their details with the area LC1 Chairpersons before reporting to the designated issuance centres.
According to Gilbert Kadilo, the public relations and corporate affairs manager at NIRA, children who had made 16 years and registered for National IDs under the Registration of Learners program have also been urged to check for their IDs at the sub-county level where their school falls.
Kadilo noted that NIRA district and regional officials will also remain open to receive people during this time.
