While it is a step in the right direction, I dont think its a prioritOne of the(many) pressing issue is Kenyans in the US who are relocating, intending to relocate or have relocated home be allowed to buy and ship a right hand vehicle from other part of the world. Unlike other Kenyans in, say Europe, we feel disadvantaged. With the mystery surrounding the populatiion of Kenyans in the US, is it another way of finding out how many we are? With the US Congress threateng foreign govts with acfine if they do not report properties or income for US citizens residing abroad, will it be another sell out? Kuuliza tu. The location and the size of our embassy with no parkings space will be another hussle. A passport should be enough to issue this document since Nyayo has copies of other documents. I cannot even where my ID is.

What a waste! the Kenyan ID is pretty useless to Kenyans in the diaspora. They should use the resources putting a toilet in the Kenyan embassy (they need one desperately for visitors) or teaching the staff there on basic etiquette.
