Hundreds of uncollected IDs lying at Embu Huduma Center

Embu Huduma Center Manager, Agnes Waweru, has asked residents who applied for Identification Cards to collect them from the center saying that close to 2,000 remain uncollected.

“Over 1,800 national Identity Cards are still lying at the Embu Huduma Center,” said Ms Waweru, pointing out that applicants have been complaining of the ID issuance process taking long yet they do not pick them once they are ready.

“Embu Huduma Center was established in the year 2014 for members of the public to access quick services from the government. We are doing our part,” she noted.

Addressing the media on Wednesday, October 19, Ms Waweru noted that ID cards are important documents as they enable the holders to carry out any official business including opening bank accounts.

She requested the provincial administration to make use of public barazas (informal meetings) to sensitize and remind Embu residents to follow up on their IDs from the center.
