Why government should extend Huduma Namba registration

The mass registration for Huduma Namba will come to an end on Saturday May 18, 2019. Kenyans of last minute are now rushing to get themselves registered following threats from the government.

The government through interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i has insisted that they will not extend the registration when they finally hit the deadline on Saturday.

Matiang’i on Monday said they had registered over 31 million people (65 percent of the total population).  He noted that the May 18 deadline for the mass registration phase won’t be extended.

However, there is need for extension of the exercise. With Kenyans coming out in large numbers for the late registration, some of the kits are failing, keeping Kenyans on queues for long hours without help.

There is also a deficit of huduma namba clerks in most areas.
