Lack of Registrar of Persons office in Subukia has subjected the locals to more suffering having to travel up to Bahati to get the services.

However, it is a sigh of relief after Kabazi MCA Dr.Peter Mbae stepped to ensure a solution to the same.

In September this year, Mbae through partnership with the Bahati office of Registrar of Persons mobilized to have locals from Subukia Sub county apply for 1,800 birth certificates.

Speaking on Monday in various points of Subukia after picking the documents, the locals lauded the MCA for the move adding that it will go a long way in addressing the challenges that they have been facing.

“We have been facing a lot of challenges having to travel all the way to Bahati to get the registration services. We want to thank MCA Mbae for the move” said one of the locals.

And in a quick rejoinder, MCA Mbae the program has seen 1,800 locals from Subukia benefit from the same.

He said this has saved the locals of up to close to  Kshs. 3,000 which they have been using to travel in serch of the services.

It is for this reason that the MCA who has an interest in the Subukia Parliamentary seat in 2022,   called on national government to ensure establishment of Registration of Persons office in every Division in Nakuru County.

“I think our people have suffered a lot and that is why we came up with this program. We are also appealing to the National government to ensure that we have these offices in every division so that we can have services closer to the people for that is the principle of devolution” said Mbae.
