The Government is in it’s final touches to put all measures in place for massive Huduma Number registration which is set to kick off beginning early next Month April.
Senators have been opposing the project wanting it suspended to allow for more consultations before its rolled out. They also argued that the system infringes the rights of Kenyans.
Speaking at Masimba during a meeting with clerks who will be involved in the registration exercise, Nyaribari Masaba Member of Parliament Hon Ezekiel Machogu has told senators to keep off politicking Huduma Number program.
“There are those who don’t understand this program. They have been saying all kinds of negative things concerning this project. Once you understand it, you will stop projecting this kind of negativity,”
“The senate has no reason at all, anything that has been passed by the National Assembly to start now calling the Minister for Interior for a meeting that they are opposing this program, Opposing for what?,” Asked Machogu.
Machogu has called upon all leaders especially the Chiefs and religious leaders to help in synthesizing Kenyans on this noble system aimed at helping them easily access government services.
“Its upon us particularly the Chiefs to be able to pass over and convey the same information to our people in each and every part of the constituency you come from,” Said Machogu.
The exercise is set to roll out nation wide in all counties as from 2nd April 2019. Matiangi has stood firm saying the program will continue as earlier planned by the Government.
“From April 2,2019, the Government will be registering all Kenyan citizens, foreigners, aliens & refugees under the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS). Non-citizens need a passport, alien card or special pass. Those without identifying documents will not be left out,” Posted Interior Ministry on Twitter
