Uhuru’s directive on IDs issuance should cut across the country – Mudavadi

The President’s directive to the National Registration Bureau to issue Identity Cards within three days of application should be implemented across the country.

Amani National Congress Leader Musalia Mudavadi said the order was not just for Jubilee dominated areas but for all counties, to bring level playing field in the August 8th polls.

Addressing a public rally at Busia polytechnic on Saturday, Mudavadi said they will not allow the president’s directive to be skewed towards Jubilee zones.

On Thursday, President Uhuru Kenya said the government will process ID cards in three days to ensure all Kenyans aged above 18 register as voters.

“Lack of proper services and bad leadership are as a result of those who do not cast their ballot,” he said in an interview on Kameme FM on Friday.

Mudavadi said the objective of the National Super Alliance is to ensure Kenyans register in big numbers as voters during the ongoing mass voter registration.

” Our common enemy are Jubilee leaders whom we want removed from power through the ballot with massive corruption under their watch. This can be made possible if Kenyans register in big numbers.

It is unfortunate that there are 120,000 identity card holders in Busia County who have not registered as voters. This calls for concerted efforts to have them register as voters,” he said.

Mudavadi said Jubilee has already shown signs of being kicked out of power after issuing smart cards which are red in colour.

“In sports a red card signals a send off. Don’t take such cards since you already know the outcome,” he said.

He said it is not time yet for NASA presidential flag bearer.

“When that time comes we shall know who to carry the mantle. If you give me an opportunity I will not refuse,” he said.

Nambale MP John Bunyasi revealed that Teso South was leading in the on-going voter registration exercise followed by Teso North.

Butula are third with Matayos taking fourth position.

Funyula MP Paul Otuoma said Busia County has been given a target of 200,000.

“Leaders should unite to ensure the target was met, lest we shall give Jubilee another term,” he said, adding NASA is an idea whose time has come.

Mudavadi was accompanied by MPs Alfred Agoi (Sabatia) and Yusuf Chanzu ( Vihiga).
