Raila launches NIIMS registration in Mombasa

While launching the NIIMS registration in Mombasa, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga conveyed that there had been an agreement between them.

"This will help all citizens of Kenya and that is why I came to Mombasa to launch it.

"We agreed together with my brother President Uhuru that he should go to Machakos, not his home-yard in Kiambu, I have not gone to Kibera or Bondo, Kalonzo has gone to Murang'a and Mudavadi is in Kajiado.

"We also agreed that Ruto will go to Kakamega to prove that this is a national initiative and not a tribal thing," Mr Odinga stated while urging residents to sign up.

The leaders were joined by Cabinet Secretaries from various ministries as well as Governors and local leaders as they launched the Huduma Namba registration.

President Kenyatta revealed that the pilot stage of the exercise had exposed over 2,000 ghost workers within the National Police Service alone.

He advocated for the NIIMS registration noting that it would be essential in weeding out corruption through ghost workers within the civil service.
