CORD strongholds lead in new identity card registrations, with statistics indicating 1.9 million Kenyans have acquired the document since the 2013 polls.
Statistics from the National Registration Bureau indicate that Raila’s political bedrocks of Nyanza and Western have 304,965 and 285,582 new IDs, respectively. The South Rift comes third, with 276,825 new ID cards. Central backyard comes a distant fourth, with only 222,683 new ID cards.

At the Coast, a total of 215,912 IDs have been issued in the region’s six counties, while in Ukambani, 190,129 IDs have been issued. In the North Rift, the NRB has issued 183,592 IDs, Upper Eastern 147,995 and in Nairobi 126,340.  The Northeastern region – Garissa, Mandera and Wajir – has performed poorest, with only 28,614 new IDs issued.
In Kenya, prospective voters must present an ID card or a valid passport to be registered to vote. Cord strategists are keen to reverse President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘tyranny of numbers’ 2013 factor and turn the tables on the ruling Jubilee alliance.
