6 issues raised with NIIMS Huduma Namba

Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot raised six issues with regard to the registration process that kicked off with a pilot phase two weeks ago.

Among the issues raised was the question on why Dr Matiang'i had not briefed Parliament on the intended registration before rolling it out.

He also asked for Parliament to be furnished with clear reasons to justify the registration process seeing that a lot of personal data will be collected from citizens.
