Kenyans without Huduma Namba to be considered foreigners- Gov't Official says

Government official says those without Huduma Namba will be considered aliens

Kenyans registering for Huduma Namba

Tana River County Commissioner Oning'oi Ole'sosio has said that people who will not have registered for the Huduma Namba by the deadline date could be considered foreigners and a threat to national security.

Ole'sosio said the registration was necessary to guarantee national security and ensure efficient delivery of services. He said that those against it had a hidden agenda.

"Last year after the abduction of an Italian volunteer by militia, we arrested one of the key suspects connected to the subsequent murder," the County Commissioner said.

"He had an ID but when we forwarded it to the National Registration Bureau, we were told the owner of the document was deceased," he added.

Lack of Birth Certificates

The county security team had discovered a syndicate involving people from a certain community who routinely hire out their ID cards to foreigners to facilitate them in criminal activities, according to Ole'sosio.

Meanwhile, the lack of identity cards and birth certificates among high school students and children respectively in Buuri East has hindered Huduma Namba registration.

The situation was similar in Luanda, Vihiga, where most of the children who turned up had no birth certificates.

Documents required

Mukhalakhala Chief Amos Okaka said they were unable to register them as birth certificates are one of the documents required.

Kenyans who are going to register for Huduma Namba will be required to have an ID card, driving license or the Kenya Revenue Authority PIN for you to be registered.

Children under 18 years will be required to present their birth certificate.
