Lugari Residents Asked to Collect National Identity Cards

There are 1,558 uncollected national Identity Cards (IDs) in Lugari Sub County.
The Sub County Registrar of Persons James Luchiri said the IDs are in his office and at the chiefs’ and assistant chiefs’ offices.
Luchiri urged the owners, majority of whom are the youth, who had applied to have the document to visit the chiefs’ and assistant chiefs’ offices in their locality to collect the same.
“I am also appealing to the chiefs and their assistants to closely work with village elders in order to trace owners of the documents,” he stated.
He however said some of the IDs belong to non-residents and there is a big challenge tracing them.
He stated that his office has devised a mechanism where the applicants give their contacts during application so that they can be contacted when their IDs are ready.
The officer said there is a challenge in Lumakanda location where there is no assistant chief following the death of Mwamba sub location assistant chief John Konzolo and the interdiction of Munyuki sub location assistant chief Kennedy Magwaga.
“We have an ongoing Rapid Result Initiative (RRI) programme where within 30 days we have been tasked to register fresh applications that are supposed to have been done in the whole year,” he said
We have so far dealt with 4,100 fresh applications and replaced 1,000 of lost IDs.
