Drama unfolded at Motobo village on the outskirts of Kericho town on Friday after a 120-year-old woman turned away the Huduma Namba registration clerks.
The Centenarian identified as Sarah Maina rejected the overtures of the clerks to register her, saying it was no longer of help to her.
Mrs. Maina took a swipe at the government, saying it had failed to assist her in restoring her eyesight and the limping in her legs and wondered why she was now being forced to register for the number.
She said the same government had failed to enlist her in the older persons cash transfer programme and added her pleas to be included in the social safety net scheme fell on deaf ears.
Attempts by the registration clerks to convince her to be registered hit a snag as the centenarian asked her grandchildren who were taking care of her to take her back inside her hut.
However, Motobo sub location Assistant Chief, Scandy Korir said she would try to intervene and have the granny register later.
Yesterday, retired President, Daniel arap Moi registered for his Huduma Namba at his home at Kabarnet Gardens, Nairobi.
The ICT Cabinet Secretary, Joe Mucheru witnessed the registration of the 94-year-old former head of state.
