The exercise started with residents of Kololo Zone 1,2,3 and 4 in Kampala before it moves on to other pilot districts including Kasese, Lira, Apach and Buyende in western Uganda.


Fred Mwesigwa, DP’s presidential spokesperson said the government should lay out a national programme for issuing the identity cards and let it be known to all Ugandans.


“The government should lay out clear procedures and proper guidelines that are to be followed when receiving IDs and it should be well known to all people right from the national level to the village level indicating the dates and time,” Mwesigwa said.


He added that government should document a clear programme to be followed and provide the print outs to churches, mosques, health centers and different institutions in the country.


Mwesigwa also recommended that all Ugandans acquire identity cards which are to be used in banks for acquiring loans, creation of accounts, also be used during the 2016 elections and traveling within the East African Community.


He demanded that all citizens be well acquainted with the exercise.


Ugandans who are residents of Kololo 1, 2, 3 and 4 parishes were seen queuing to receive their cards and for one to receive the card, he or she must have registered during the 2011 national elections.


The distribution of cards is to be done by the directorate of citizenship and immigration control together with local leaders.
