At least 295 members of the Makonde community have been issued with IDs as promised by President Uhuru Kenyatta in October.

Kilifi county commissioner Joseph Keter said the number was reached after the second phase of the registration which ended two weeks ago.

He further noted that the registration of the members of the community will continue until the state reaches all of them.

Uhuru directed that the Makonde community, who migrated from Mozambique decades ago, be issued with IDs that recognise as Kenya’s citizens by December.
