Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s daughter, Rosemary Odinga has urged the youth to secure national identity cards upon attaining the requisite age.

Ms Odinga said the ID is an important weapon every Kenyan aged 18 and above must possess to face the future with confidence.

She said besides the crucial exercise of voting in elections to determine the leadership of the nation, the ID is the key to many doors, including access to money.

“You need your identity card to register for M-Pesa, open a bank account, move around freely and much more,” she told youth who are yet to obtain the card.

Odinga was in Ukwala, Siaya County where she presided over the launch of Matibabu foundation, a Non-Governmental Organisation anchored on health and sanitation.
