Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Friday issued a stern warning to all those who intend to interfere with the upcoming Biometric Census set for August 2019.

Through his Facebook page, the lawmaker urged authorities located at border points to ensure foreigners do not affect the process in any way.

“Dear Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and the Indian Ocean. We are about to embark on a Biometric Census. This is about Kenyans. Do not try to get your nationals to cross over to beef up the numbers of some communities.

“This simply won’t work. We will use biometric technology not improvised explosive devices (IED’s).

“And to the Chiefs and Sub-Chiefs along our borders, your loyalty should be to your country, not your communities,” he wrote.

The Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) has concluded mapping for most of the 47 counties in preparation for the 2019 housing and population census.

The census officials said enumerators will be requesting information on names of homesteads, Names of household heads, number of usual members of the households.

They will also be asking for any agricultural activities and details of both administrative and political units which will be captured in the surveys digital data portal.
