Early this month, President Uhuru Kenyatta presided over the national launch of the new Huduma Namba, a project that seeks to identify all Kenyan residents through a unique primary identifier.
The President kicked off the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) by signing up for his own Huduma Namba and flagging off the registration kits to all the 47 counties.
He rolled out the NIIMS project at the Masii Public Grounds in Machakos County while Sports, Culture and Heritage CS, Ambassador Amina Mohammed represented Deputy President William Ruto in Kakamega County where the exercise was launched simultaneously.
In a historic demonstration of national unity and common purpose, key opposition leaders trooped to three other launch sites to witness the rollout of the 45-day Huduma Namba registration drive which they all hailed as an important exercise.
