Thousands of IDs and birth certificates remain uncollected in Narok

About 2764 National Identity cards and over 1000 birth certificates are yet to be collected at the Narok Huduma Centre.

The Centre Manager Evalyne Katamboi said the number represents documents that owners applied for last year and early this year, but have not shown up to collect the documents.

Despite the long queue that is witnessed when the residents are applying for the important documents, she said, only a few people turn up to pick the documents when they are processed.

She spoke to KNA Wednesday at her office where she called on the residents to walk to the Huduma Centre that is housed at the Narok Post Office, to pick their documents free of charge.

The Centre Manager reminded the residents that the identity card is a crucial document that one has to produce while seeking services in all offices in the country, wondering why they had to apply for the document and later ignore to pick them.

Similarly, the manager said that a birth certificate is an essential document required while one is applying for bursaries, registering with National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF), registration in schools among others.

“The birth certificates that were applied for last year and were not picked are 550 while those applied and not picked between the months of January to date are 455. We are reminding the residents that applied for the documents that they do not pay any fee while picking the documents,” she reiterated.

Other services offered at the Huduma Centre, she said, are NHIF, Placement of University Students (PUS), Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) services, High Education Loans Board (HELB) and applying for good conduct certificates.

Other services offered at the Huduma Centre are registering of the new vehicle number plates by the National Transport Safety Authority (NTSA).
