Bomet East MP Beatrice Kones has urged the Immigration ministry to speed up the processing ID cards to enable voter registration meet the 18 million target.
Speaking in Bomet during the launch of voter registration on Monday, Kones said some applicants have waited for the cards since the beginning of the year.
She said no one should be denied their constitutional right to vote in the name of a delay in releasing IDs. "If the commission miss their target then the ministry has itself to blame," Kones said.
"The minister should ensure his team is on its toes as the country is conducting a crucial exercise which should not be taken for granted." She also urged locals to turn up and register during the 30-day period. "No one should expect an extension," Kones said after registering at the Bomet municipal centre in her Bomet East constituency.
