  18. Then a time has come for the ministry to reconsider the promise they gave on a date sometimes back saying the materials had run short but now it is in their hands . why don’t you here the plead of poor Kenyans who wants to benefit a lot from the ID?am a student now in the second year of study, the fees are too high for me and i sometimes wish to call off the semester! this is because i cant apply for the HELB loan without an ID.The CIC also wants the Sim cards to be registered and they don’t consider our cries. so who are this people we are talking about?i wonder if u read this.and if you do so, why don’t you respond?

  19. Hi why do I send an SMS in three attempts with no response? How effective is this your service?

  20. Now a days the Ministry has lowered its services and we wonder where we are going, I.D. card is everything, and my I.D. has never been returned since I applied, I have been told so many and many times to wait, i need to go to school or apply for Forces but no I.D. The Ministry is denying me a job.

  21. Hey, do something about our IDs. I applied for mine in September 2009 and it’s not yet ready.

  22. Pls people are waiting since 25/11/010 to 1/3/011 no IDs but still under process . Why don’t you check on this?(so that TUJIFUNIE KUA WAKENYA).

  23. Pls there are those who have applied IDs so to enable them get birth/certificate.The period to register the exam is clocking pls assist these children to make their future. Another thing pls people of manyatta are waiting for too long to be given the IDs. Pls check this.

  24. having applied my id card on 10-august-2010 in meru registration centre in meru town i was told 2 check after 2 months ,i now wonder if i was told 2 months or 2years its 6 months now ,so i have a 1,1;2years more 2 wait for.yet i see every day the goverment spokesman saying that we should be proud 2 be kenyans that is nonses tupatieni id zetu or else tutaendea zetu uganda au tanzania,.serikali,serikali should we c0nsult with u for our ids .how long shall we suffer how long ,.

  25. something need to be done. the government should realize that one can virtually not do anything without an id! even a simple process like an mpesa transaction. we complain aabout petty issues of ppl being tapped but u are quiet about this id crisis! those busy bodies…the likes of kwalwale and the odm and pnu backbenchers,…if u want to prove your worth…raise this matter in parliament asap! enough said!

  26. You guys are just not realistic… over 6 months since applying for IDs and they are not yet ready… WE NEED OUR IDs. PERIOD. WE DON’T CARE WHAT ISSUES N DIFFERENCES U GAT. PLEASE.

  27. The process is too slow. You’ll be to blame if KCSE candidates fail to be registered due to lack of national ID. Five month too long a wait yet it is still being processed!

  28. There is complete lack of accountability in the ministry this being clearly evidenced by the fact that the links to check status for your ID are always dead, I even wonder why the fuck they’ve put them there.The problem is tht a senior govt official is blocking the issuance of the tender for printing third generation IDs for personal reasons. How can one perosn hold over 800,000 people ransom yet I think there is the rule of the law with the promulgation of the new constitution? Let that person be punished for causing frustration to a million Kenyans, he’s now publicly known and has even been indicted in Ocampo’s list

  29. For over six months Kenyans are suffering due to unnecesary delayance of IDs! What is going on? can someone please shade some light? Are we still living in the dark Nyayo days? please release our identity cards.

  30. This is a good initiative by the goverment but the problem is most of the time the site is unavailable thus hampering the tracking efforts of individual kenyans

  31. Checking the status of id and passport online is good and helps alot.but your links is not available most of the time.please improve on that,thank u.
