Nakuru residents want “huduma namba” clerks increased

Residents of Nakuru County want the government to increase the number of clerks at the “huduma namba” registration points.

The residents who turned up for the exercise say the long queues were discouraging even as they expressed optimism the new cards will ease access to services.

The government launched the 45 day registration exercise early this month.

Hundreds of residents of Nakuru County and its environs  turned up to be registered under the National Integrated Identity Management System.

The residents were optimistic the personal identification system will help simplify processes and enhance public service delivery in Kenya.

At the same time they faulted a section of politicians and members of the clergy for undermining the programme with the aim of scaring away the citizens from embracing the digital registration.

Meanwhile, in Hola Coast Regional Commissioner John Elungata says the number of residents turning out to register for Huduma Namba in the region was encouraging.

He said at least 400,000 residents had turned out in the six counties to register in the first eight days of the exercise.

Elsewhere, Coast Regional Commissioner John Elungata has expressed satisfaction with the rate at which residents were turning out to register for Huduma Namba in the region.

Elungata says at least 400,000 residents had turned out in the six counties to register with the National Integrated Information Management System (NIIMS) in the first eight days of the exercise.

Speaking in Tana River County, Elungata, expressed optimism that the exercise would be a success, but urged residents not to wait till the last minute to register for the unique identification number.

The Regional Commissioner further dispelled fears that the Huduma Namba was demonic, saying it was aimed at making it easy for wananchi to receive government services using one card unlike the current situation in which one has to produce a number of cards for different government services.
