Kithure Kindiki, the interior cabinet secretary, paid Nyayo House another surprise visit on Monday.
On September 11, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki paid a second unannounced visit to Nyayo House.
CS Kithure engaged Kenyans who had come to both pick up and have their passports processed while he was there, as well as senior immigration state department personnel.
The Interior CS promised that this administration would clean up corruption at Nyayo House and ensure speedy passport printing and collection.
“Sustaining the momentum for radical changes to create efficiency, eradicate corruption, and clear the historical backlog in the processing of passports remains a primary and must-achieve target for the Government,” said CS Kithure.

Kindiki paid a similar visit last week, engaging the Kenyans waiting in line at Nyayo House and announcing that the State would process the backlog of 40,000 awaiting passports.
The historical backlog of more than 40,000 pending passport applications must be cleared in 10 days. We will be able to address the structural issues that have impeded service delivery with the deployment of day and night shifts, the purchase of contemporary printing equipment, and the hiring of extra immigration officers, he said.
