Kenyans who will not have registered for the Huduma Namba before the May 18, 2019 deadline will face consequences, the State has said.
Speaking on Citizen TV Thursday, Kenyan Government spokesperson Mr Eric Kiraithe compared the Huduma Namba to the national identity card (ID) and its significance in most daily activities.
He maintained that it’s crucial for Kenyans to spare time and register for the National Integrated Identity Management System (Niims) number as it will be of equal importance.
“The consequences are very simple; if you are living in a country where you are required to produce your identity card at the bank or when you’re sitting an exam, at the end of the day, unless you really want to be inconvenienced, you will have to get it[huduma namba],” explained Kiraithe.
The spokesman further noted that Kenyans who fail to register for Huduma Namba during the ongoing mass registration will have to endure camping at government offices to register.
“Whereas now you are only going to the local school or market and getting it… You will travel longer distances. At the end of the day you cannot choose not to do with it,” added Kiraithe.
