MANDERA: UN-PAID NATIONAL CENSUS ENUMERATORS "EJECT" DC FROM OFFICE
Hundreds of youth and elders who were officials in the census on Monday protested over nonpayment of their dues. They marched to the district headquarters and ejected the DC from his office to address them on the delayed pay.
“We want to be told the truth; they already said we will not be paid,” one enumerator Abey Mohamed told the Nation.
Mandera East DC Francis Leyangume said they will have to sort the errors in the account information of the protesting youth.
The Kenya National Census was carried out in September/October, 2009 and was marred in irregularities. Kenya is estimated at close to 40 Million people.
