The government has revealed when the first batch of Huduma Namba will be available. In a statement, Principal Secretary, State Department Of Interior Karanja Kibicho explained that the production was slowed with a court case challenging the service.
Kibicho noted that the mass production of the numbers will begin later this year. He acknowledged that initiatives like Huduma number are the best when it comes to identity management.
“The establishment of NIIMS & issuance of @hudumanambake is one of the global best practices in terms of identity management. The process was slowed down by the case filed at the High Court in 2019, but mass production of Huduma cards will begin by the end of this year,” said Kibicho.
Here is the statement.
