The National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) has revealed plans to employ over 11,000 temporary staff to carry out the countrywide National Identification card renewal exercise which is set to start in June this year.

Edwin Tukamuhebwa, the Manager Registration and Operations NIRA revealed that the renewal exercise is going to be conducted at the parish level and it will last for eight months.

β€œWe have provided the budget to have 11,000 temporary staff. These registrations and renewal activities will be done at parish levels, so our staff will be at the parishes for eight months to make sure that people have renewed their IDs, those who are not registered have been registered and those who have renewed and registered received their IDs. So, we will use temporary staff the way we did it in 2014,” he said.

He stated that NIRA will hold a free nation-wide mass registration for all Ugandans, continuing that Identification and registration is the only way of ensuring safety and that no one is left behind.

β€œYou can’t protect people that you do not know,” he added.

The constitution provides for the rights of all people including the poor and vulnerable, to access social services and mandates the state for care and provide for the aged.
