KENYA: 2009 Census Plans On Track Despite Displacement

The census will cover the displaced wherever they will be

NAIROBI, 19 March 2008 (IRIN) – The political crisis in Kenya caused major population movements that may require a repeat of cartographic mapping in some areas before the 2009 census, but plans for the official count are on track, a government official told IRIN.

“We are revising our work plan and looking at areas where we might have to repeat cartographic mapping but we expect to hold the census on 25 August 2009 as planned,” said Chris Omolo, the census manager and principal economist at the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS).

“We expect to be through with cartographic mapping countrywide by March 2009, May at the latest.”

With the support of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and other stakeholders, the development of all instruments for the exercise – manuals, questionnaires, etc – is expected to be ready in time.

Kemal Mustafa, UNFPA representative in Kenya, said early preparation was crucial. “Logistical mobilisation will not be easy as we head up to the census,” Mustafa said. “Lack of census data slows down the process through which the government can plan for the numbers of people requiring services.”

The January-February post-election violence had affected settlement patterns in parts of the country, Omolo said, but the statistics bureau had yet to assess the extent of this disruption.

“We expect things to go back to normal as we are now seeing many of those who had been displaced returning home,” he said. If, by August 2009, there were still internally displaced persons in the country, then “they will be counted wherever they will be”.

Nyanza, Rift Valley and Western provinces bore the brunt of the crisis.

''Though we have lost some time because of the crisis, we still expect to conduct the census on time; it all depends on how things settle in the next few months''

“When the violence erupted, cartographic mapping had been done in Nyanza, Western and parts of Rift Valley, excluding Uasin Gishu and Trans Nzoia districts, where we had just undertaken sensitisation ahead of the mapping,” Omolo said. “There are a few areas we may have to go back to and repeat the mapping. We have suspended mapping in some areas where there was massive population movement.”

The bureau, he added, was currently focusing on areas least affected by the violence, such as Eastern and Central provinces, where cartographic mapping was ongoing.

“Though we have lost some time because of the crisis, we still expect to conduct the census on time; it all depends on how things settle in the next few months,” Omolo said. “We base the census on the people’s places of abode and come the census night, we will consider all households wherever they will be.”

Given that the post-election crisis later took on ethnic dimensions, Omolo said, the bureau was treating the issue of formulating questions aimed at establishing ethnicity “very seriously”.

During the census in 1989 and in 1999, respondents were asked their ethnic backgrounds. But whereas the data regarding ethnicity was made public after the 1989 census, the findings for the 1999 census were not, due to the “sensitivity” of the issue.

The process of formulating the questionnaire for the 2009 census is under way, Omolo said, adding that it took into account compatibility with international standards and past practice.

Zipporah Gathiti, UNFPA monitoring and evaluation officer, said the agency was supporting KNBS in the development of an advocacy strategy, through the establishment of publicity teams that would be sent out on sensitisation campaigns ahead of the census.

The agency was also assisting KNBS in its development of an internet-based software system, the Integrated Multi-sectoral Information System (IMIS), which would eventually make census data available to the public.

Data from the 1989 and 1999 census had been uploaded to IMIS, she said. “A population census is the most comprehensive data collection you can have,” Gathiti said.

the 2009 census because as per my view the Government can put mechanisms in place to ensure that everybodyb nis counted all over Kenya including the small village where Obamas father was born.The Government needs to come up with the most recent these relevant statistics.

Hi. Am francis loli, Moi university student and w’d realy like to participate in the census as a supervisor. I hail in west pokot and il be more than glad if u granted me this chance. I can be reached via 0721463013 thank you.

WE DID THE INTERVIEWS AS ENUMERATORS AND WE ARE EXPECTING A CORRUPTION FREE PROCESS FROM INTERVIEWERS

awaiting calls from them,we hope they’ll select the best for best results!

i think university students should be given first priorities since we said we ought to have them be independent and this will help them a step forward by serving the nat5ion

The Kenya we want should be a corrupton free zone. We have heard cases of corruption in the previous exercisesand we hope this year is going to be an exception. Let there be transparency in giving Kenyans opportunity to participate in the data collection. In other words the first priority should be given to Universty students to exercise there potentials. Am a student at the UoN-0728017195

I applied for cencus supervisors’ post, called for interview but now mombasa district has not release the result. dont be affraid jst communicate the people who have succed, so that we dont expect alot.

W TOOK PART IN THE CENSUS INTERVIEW THINKING IT OULD
WOULD BE FAIR AND CORRUPT FREE ONLY TO REALIZE WE
WE WERE MISTAKEN AS CORRUPTION WAS THE T5HEORDER
OF THE DAY.THEY ALSO EXCLUDED COLLEGE AND VARSITY STUDENTS

The lesson learnt in the recrutment of personnel in
to take part in 24 August housing and population is that we have entirely lost the fight aganist graft.also,its apity that we are talking about about vision 2030 while we emrace and love corruption.when OBAMA talked about his brother in kenya not able to secure employment coz he cannot afford to bribe,we thuoght this wa a joke,BUT in kenya its aplace whw aplace where u get a job not simply out our qualifications but simply on the matter of size of our bribe.THOSE INVOLVED SHOULD GIVE AS ANSWERS,r we in line with our vision 2030 or we are simply drifting away from it

In my District, Laikipia East selection of enumerators was done fairly. Kudos to the District Census committee it is very much unlike the electoral commission of Kenya.

Thankful the interview excercise was corruption free in migwani division,mwingi district. Only that an error occured where my names appeared in two villages and yet l applied for one. Now the villagers where l don’t come from are threatening to slaughter me should l step there. How is my security guaranteed in such a case,please help provide me with security.

I am a Kenyan. My family of 4 and myself are currently in London. Please advise how do we get ourselves counted in the census?
Do we contact the Kenya High Commission here?
Can we submit our data on line to KN Cnensus Bureau?
Awaiting your reply

it is good but it is slow
the tribal part is very extremely bad

my the please help provide kenya with security.

what are the importance of census?
secondly, sources of information data?

i have been counted,ninatambulike!

This time’s exercise was carried out in an unpleasant manner.All the same,process the data and let kenyans know how many hey are.Do not give tribal reports.

When will data entry process for the just concluded census commence and how does one interested in participating in the process tender his application? Please do expand on include the deadline for such applications as well as any other vital information regarding the same.

After the census,I propose that the government should put a lot of emphasis on areas of weakness.
