President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday gave two updates regarding Huduma Number Registration.

Through his Easter message, the Head of State assured Kenyans that the information they are giving out is safe and the new system is better than the old manual system.

“The National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) guards the integrity of our data much better than the manual system we are moving away from.

“I assure Kenyans and all people residing in our beautiful country that we are taking additional measures to ensure the information they give is safe.

“Yesterday, the Cabinet approved a progressive draft Data Protection Policy and Bill,” said the President.

Further, he advised Kenyans in diaspora that they will also be able to register starting May 6, 2019.

“Fellow Kenyans living in the Diaspora, I am pleased to inform you that the Huduma Namba registration begins on May 6th for a period of 45 days at our Embassies and Consulates,” said President Kenyatta.

He also urged Christians to use the Easter period to reflect on their relationship with God and show compassion to the needy.

“As Government, we recognise the difficulties being faced by Kenyans faced with drought in parts of the country and assure that we are working to mitigate the situation.

During this long weekend, be safe and remain secure. For those of us traveling to different parts of the country to be with our loved ones, please observe road safety precautions at all times.

Equally important and in the spirit of community policing, let us stay vigilant in our neighborhoods and ensure that our families and our neighbours are safe. Let us all be the Biblical brother’s and sister’s keepers,” read his statement in part.
