Kenyans who will be seeking to replace their national identity cards will now have to pay Ksh.100 after the government reintroduced the fee which had been scrapped.
The Director of National Registration Reuben Kimotho has today, Tuesday 13th directed all Sub-county Registration Officers to ensure the amount is charged for processing a duplicate ID card.
The amount will not be charged to persons applying for an ID card for the first time.
“Kindly note that the Ksh.100 fee will not be applicable to young persons who are attaining the 18 years. As the manager in charge of registration of persons in the Sub County, you must exercise accountability, you will personally be held responsible for any mishandling or misappropriation of the revenue,” read the notice.
The charging amount of the replacement will take effect as from Thursday, March 15, 2018, and when seeking a replacement one should have a police abstract, ID number and a copy of the lost card.
