Nakuru man wants court permission to stay with no identification documents

The Ugandan Martyrs shrine in Namugongo where Christians were killed for their faith. The Nakuru man says his faith does not allow him to possess an identity card and wants the court to grant him an affidavit to do live without one.

The spirit of God is ‘commanding’ men to do very unrealistic things these days. Just early this month the social media was awash with reports that a Nigerian Pastor had impregnated 20 members of his church because the holy spirit had commanded him to do so.

And in June last year, a Nairobi Pastor was reported to have defiled and impregnated his daughter aged 15 after a similar command.

Now a Nakuru man has received another ‘weird’ command from the holy spirit. It has told him not to accept an identity card (ID) as well as a personal identification number (PIN).

Joseph Muiyuro Njoroge who even without being told his age is mature by all means is asking a Nakuru court to grant him an affidavit so as to live without the trouble of bearing and caring these documents.

Through Ochweri, Ngamati & Company Advocates, Muiyuro who lives in Wanyororo Nakuru but who insists he is from Murang’a, has drafted an affidavit that only awaits the court’s decision before it becomes valid.

“That I am a member of the Akorino Nguo Nyeupe (Akorino church whose members dress in white) and our faith does nor allow me to possess an identity card and PIN Number,” his affidavit partly reads.

“That I swear this affidavit to support any transaction that I may do without the identity card or PIN Number,” it continues.

When he came to court today he was dressed in a white robe, a white pair our trousers underneath and a white scarf on his head, perhaps to emphasize the color aspect of his religion. He did not accept to shake hands with strangers as his religion does not allow such. “We usually go with our village head men every time we want to be identified,” he responded after being asked of how he conducts business. “We even have land and we have been able to get title deeds without ID’s,” he said shortly after leaving the court.

Although the affidavit indicates that he is the only one seeking the permission to conduct business without the identification documents, he indicated that he is doing it on behalf of his church. “We are about 100 members,” he said.

Asked how and when they received the communication from above he alludes to the bible saying “there are so many orders that were given but which are not written in the book.”

The request has been filed in chamber six of Nakuru Law Courts. Without being committal a court official attached to the chamber has hinted that it has been dismissed. “The man should be in jail by now,” the court official said.

An ID is the most basic identification documents. Without it a citizen is unable to participate in democratic processes such as voting as they can not be issued with a voters card among other documents. Not having an identity card can also be risky as it is difficult to identify any person who has never been registered.

  2. 25/11/2012 – 8:25pmPues yo os prometo que no sé qué haré en las próximas elecciones en las que me toque votar. Me tienen tan desanimados los políticos en este país que ya es que no me creo absolutamente nada de ninguno.  Aunque tengo que reconocer que es un gustazo ver a Toni Cantó darles caña a PSOE y PP en el parlamento. Desde luego es un soplo de aire fresco, aunque me temo que llega demasiado tarde…

  4. As someone who did give up the day job, it could be argued that any advice from me should be taken with a liberal dose of salts. I'd like to hope that this blog entry might give any up-and-comers a truthful insight into what it means to be a career writer.

  5. and done, Psychology Today sent an email to ColorofChange.org and informed the largest online African American political organization that Kanazawa’s work won’t appear on their site any longer. Psychology Today even said they’ve instituted new rules to prevent inflammatory content in the future."For 'inflammatory' substitute 'true'. Negroes have very delicate feelings, in between all the raping and robbing and murdering that they do.

  9. Nice article. Since I moved to rural Vermont, I have actually joined the grange. Just down the street from my house is one of the oldest grange halls in Vermont. While I also see the decline in public participation, I also see hope in the small towns of this area. People are looking for a sense of belonging and getting it live or online. The implications for educators include the strengthening of the school as one of the last remaining public institutions. How we harness that and use it to advantage of the children is a great challenge for principals. Thanks for writing this.

  10. The respondent had not provided transport from work to home that night because, according to the claimant, he stayed at a place called Kaptembwa within Nakuru Town and under the respondent s operational policies, the place was near the claimant s work place and therefore transport was not necessary.
