The Big 6 questions

Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka on Thursday approved a request by Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot to have the government answer six queries on the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) registration.

In a letter, Senator Cheruiyot enumerated the clarifications MPs would like Interior CS Fred Matiang'i to address.

"Explain the reasons for the introduction of NIIMS. [Two] Provide ownership details of company(ies) undertaking the exercise and explain whether the due procurement process was followed in acquiring the services of the said company(ies)," the letter read in part.

The letter went on to demand that the government should explain the budget allocated to the exercise and outline what each part of the process will cost.

Matiang'i asked to explain why he hasn't briefed Parliament

The letter further demanded a statement from the government to assure citizens that the data collected would not be accessed by unauthorized persons.

"State why the relevant Cabinet Secretary has not briefed Parliament on the exercise and when he plans to do so; and

"Explain why the exercise was not conducted along with the forthcoming National Census," the letter concluded.

The piloting phase of the NIIMS registration kicked off earlier in the week with some religious people raising concerns on the apocalyptic 666 mark of the beast.

PS Karanja Kibicho later dispelled the concerns adding that the clerks would not be collecting any DNA and blood samples.
