- Any person whose data has errors will have them addressed at his/her local chief’s office in a four-month period after the registration deadline.
The government will not extend registration period for the National Integrated Identity Management System, also known as Huduma Namba, beyond the May 25 deadline.
Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna on Thursday said said any person whose data has errors will have them addressed at his local chief’s office in a four-month period after the registration deadline.
On the other hand, those who register successfully will have their Huduma numbers sent to them through their mobile phones.
Addressing the press in Nairobi, Mr Oguna said 36 million Kenyans had been registered. “Huduma Namba is supposed to streamline the acquisition of services, making it easier for the public to access them. Without it, you could still access them but it will not be as easy as for one who has the number,” he said.
Mr Oguna also gave a briefing on the implementation of the new competency-based curriculum (CBC).
