President William Ruto presided over the wedding of Nicholas Mwangi and Judith Kemboi at KICC to mark the rolling out of the new E-Citizen platform

President William Ruto graced a civil wedding ceremony as the chief guest, which marked the grand inauguration of Kenya's revolutionary digital Civil Registration Services for Marriages.

The event took place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, witnessing the union of a couple (Nicholas Mwangi and Judith Kemboi) who became the trailblazers to receive their marriage certificate through this innovative digital platform.

President Ruto spearheaded the ambitious digitization process of over 5,000 government services at the iconic Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC).

This groundbreaking initiative aims to transform the accessibility and utilization of vital government services for citizens, fostering efficiency and convenience.


The civil wedding ceremony unfolded before President Ruto, with the registrar of marriages officiating the proceedings.

In a gesture of goodwill and in celebration of their special day, President Ruto presented the newlywed couple with a heartfelt gift.

The gift was a 4-night honeymoon stay at Leopard Beach Hotel in Diani.


With their marriage certificate in hand, the joyous pair embarks on their shared journey, ready to embrace the blessings of matrimony.

President Ruto also introduced Gava Mkononi, a mobile application that empowers Kenyans to access government services on the go.

Furthermore, the President unveiled Gava Express, inspired by Huduma Canters.


Diverging from the county-based Huduma Centers, Gava Express aims to bring services to the grassroots level, establishing over 300,000 outlets akin to mobile money agents.

The digitization of government services signifies a remarkable leap towards an efficient and accessible administration for the Kenyan citizens.

The expansion of services has resulted in a substantial increase in revenue generated from levies and fees associated with government services.

The top 10 most sought-after services on the e-Citizen platform include:

  1. NTSA - Provisional Driving License
  2. Business Registration Services
  3. Police Clearance / Certificate of Good Conduct
  4. Civil Registration Services – Marriages
