The census exercise kicked off on August 24.
There have been incessant calls from all sectors asking that we show up and get counted during this Housing and Population Census 2019.

In a brief address after the enumeration exercise, the President reiterated his earlier call to Kenyans to participate in the national exercise so as to provide the government with appropriate data for purposes of planning national development programs.
"Mine is to say that I have formally gone through the process. We've completed that exercise with my family," the President stated.
"Once again I reiterate that this is an exercise that's is geared towards helping us plan for your future. It is an exercise that is geared towards better utilization of your taxes to ensure that they get to the people. You cannot plan if you do not have the right statistics," he added.
