Thika Sub-County has rolled out a mobile national identity (ID) registration exercise to enable them register as many people as possible. 

Speaking at the Thika Community Hall Grounds on Thursday, Thika West Deputy County Commissioner Mr. Mwai Gichero said that his team was targeting to register all those who did not have IDs in the District. 

He added that noone was supposed to pay any money or bribe anyone in order to acquire this vital document. He called on any person claiming to be asked for bribes or denied this service for flimsy reasons to inform his area chief or come to his office for action to be taken. He said that registration of IDs was free unless one had to swear an affidavit for any reason or another.

He read out the programme for the mobile ID registration centres for Thika West as follows;- 
6th Oct 2015 - Kenyatta Primary School
7th Oct 2015 - Garissa Rd. Primary School
8th Oct 2015 - Makongeni 
14th Oct 2015 - Kimuchu Primary School.

Those applying for the same should come with all the necessary documents required to enable one to be registered. 

The Independent Electoral & Boundaries Commission (I.E.B.C.) will also be present in these centres to register new voters. Anyone who gets this message is asked to pass it to as many people as possible.

Meanwhile, the DDCC has appealed to Thika residents to embrace the 'Nyumba Kumi' initiative to help tackle the security and social issues in their residence. He said that, for an ideal environment, everyone needed to be their brothers' keepers. Through the initiative, the community should work out ways to identify and assist the aged, the very poor, persons living with disability and orphans amongst them.

He added that since its inception in 2006, the 'Pesa ya Wazee' had now benefited more than 700 aged persons to a tune of Ksh. 20million in this district. He called upon everyone to take responsibility to ensure that all deserving cases in the society benefited from this fund.
