The Kenya Kwanza Alliance will take action over the ongoing SIM card registration.

Kenya Kwanza Alliance will move to court if the ongoing SIM card registration is not halted, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has said.

Speaking on Saturday, April 9 at Karen, Nairobi, the Bungoma senator said that the process was a burden to Kenyans who were already grappling with other problems.

“Save Kenyans this burden and embarrassment of telling Kenyans to go and register the Sim Cards whose details you already have," Wetangula remarked.

According to the Kenya Kwanza principal, the registration process was illegal.

“We will ask our lawyers led by Kithure Kindiki and others, if they do not stop, to go to court and stop them because it is illegal, and burdensome to Kenyans," he added.

His remarks came after the Communication Authority of Kenya CEO Ezra Chiloba said that Kenyans who did not register their SIM details would be disconnected.

The former IEBC CEO, however, clarified that only users who were not duly registered by their operators needed to give the registration details.

Users were required to dial *106# to know if they are duly registered by the service providers. The communication authority has set April 15 as the deadline for the registration.

"If you don't do that (register) the telcos are going to switch you off. Looking at the situation across the country, the compliance rate is not good at all which means the risks are even much higher," Chiloba said.
