There was confusion online on Monday morning after the Immigration Department announced that Kenyans wouldn’t be able to receive government services unless they register for the new “Huduma Namba” that is currently being rolled out.
So, what is this Huduma Namba?
All Kenyans and foreigners aged six years and above are expected to be registered digitally and given unique numbers containing their personal data. The government purpots that this is a way to “eradicate forgeries of national identification documents and crime”.
According to the Immigration Department, to register for the Huduma Namba, you need either of the following identification documents; an ID, Birth Certificate or Driving License and be present at the registration centers for biometrics. The compulsory process will run for 30 days and one can register from chief’s camps across the country.
