“A fee of Shs 10,000 per day and Shs 400,000 per month was promised to us but all this has not been forwarded. Can you imagine we sit and work for almost 13 hours but we are given Shs 1,000,” Alex Opuru one of the workers in Kamwokya said.

Allan Kajuki, the deputy Residence City Commissioner, says that his office was stormed by the workers who handed over the tools they have been using which include computers, cameras, ink pads and scholastic materials, threatening not to continue with the exercise if their grievances are not put straight.

“The issue is going to be solved and addressed, because it seems this is a nationwide worry that the government may not fully pay those who were given the task to register people for the national identity cards. We hear that some local council officials have started getting money from those who appear, but not well known in the area, so that they can be backed up to be registered,” said Allan Kajuki.

The exercise which has so far taken a month, has not run smoothly and in some areas computers have failed even to recognise the bio data of some individuals.


Kajuki promised to forward the complaints of the workers and warned to net all those taking away money from those seeking the national cards, because the whole process is entirely free.
