Oguna also urged those who were yet to register to take advantage of the extension period given by President Uhuru Kenyatta
Those locked out by the deadline will have to seek the services from their Assistant Chiefs and Oguna warned that they may not be given priority
Government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna on Thursday stated that some people might be required to register afresh for Huduma Namba.
Speaking during a press conference, Oguna noted that once the registration process comes to an end, the data collected will be cleaned and those who gave wrong details of their Identification Cards and birth certificates will be asked to go back and give the correct details.
“When the mass registration comes to an end on Saturday, what will happen thereafter is the process of cleaning the data; there will be some areas that the data may look same or maybe it was not entered properly.
“So you may have registered, yes, but in the process of cleaning data, then you’re found to have either given the wrong I.D (national identification) number or the wrong number of your birth certificate, then they would be communicated to go and register afresh,” he said.
Oguna also urged those who were yet to register to take advantage of the extension period given by President Uhuru Kenyatta and ensure they register by Saturday.
Those locked out by the deadline will have to seek the services from their Assistant Chiefs and Oguna warned that they may not be given priority.
“The only problem with that (not registering) – and that’s why we’re asking that all of us should be able to take advantage of this window before it closes because there’ll be no extension – is that the Assistant Chief will have other responsibilities so they’ll not give you priority,” he remarked.
So far, over 36 million Kenyans have registered for Huduma Namba. According to the government, the process is aimed at ensuring citizens access its services in a more efficient way.
