Youth in Tana River protest the delay in issuance of IDs

25th June, 2016

Hundreds of youth in Madogo, Tana-River County took to the streets to protest against lack of ID cards. The over 500 youth blocked the busy Garissa-Nairobi road paralyzing transport for over 2 hours. They say that lack of id cards has greatly inconvenienced them. Majority of them can no longer travel, open an account, enroll for further studies or even secure any legal employment. They are claiming that the registration office has become partisan and overtaken by politicians who only push for issuance of ID cards for their supporters.
