Kenya’s ID Renewal Fee Sparks Debate

1 min read

The government has introduced a policy requiring citizens to renew their National ID every 10 years at a cost of Ksh 1,000.

This policy has sparked widespread criticism and debate among the public, with many questioning the rationale behind the expiration of a fundamental identification document and expressing concerns about the financial burden it imposes, especially on those who may not be able to afford the renewal fee.

Critics argue that the policy effectively makes citizenship a paid service and could potentially disenfranchise individuals unable to renew their IDs, leading to calls for its reconsideration.
