This is to ensure that all Kenyans are at home so that they can be counted.

We are going to going close all our social places especially the bars at 5pm to give you an hour to be home before the enumerators arrive at 6pm so that they can find you at home,” the CS stated.

Warning to cons

He further noted that the enumerators will not be strangers since they are people from appointed from their respective sub-location.

The Interior CS said: “No one will come from outside their sub-location, which means they know people around there, they are known and they know their way around.”

CS Matiang’i assured Kenyans that security will be beefed up and all security personnel have been recalled from leave to ensure that the exercise is carried out effectively.

He also issued a stern warning to those who will purport to be monitoring the census exercise without clearance adding that foreign agencies and individuals had been vetted for approval.

The census will start on August 24th 2019 and end on August 31st 2019 and the enumerators are expected to take about 30 minutes in every household.
