The Former Vice President Moody Awori on Wednesday registered for the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) at his home in Kileleshwa, Westlands Constituency.
Speaking after the registration, Awori, encouraged members of the public who have not registered to take the
opportunity before the end of the exercise on May 17.
He said it is important that each individual gets a huduma namba as it will help in identification and the government to plan its policies and programmes.
“You never know when you will need the service from the government and if you have not gotten the huduma namba the service may be slower,” said Awori.
The Westlands Deputy County Commissioner (DCC), Mawiira Mungania who facilitated the registration said the government in the spirit of door to door registration of huduma namba, is committed to register senior citizens of this country who have served the country diligently, the former Vice President being one of them.
“Senior citizens who have served the country and are not able to reach the registrations centres and have made a request will be registered at the comfort of their homes,” said the DCC.
He said the Sub-County has enough registration officers and will ensure that the process reaches everyone at the grassroots.
Mungania asked those who have not registered to do so before the end of the process assuring that the speed of the process has increased since the officers have gained experience unlike the first days when the exercise commenced.
“The process takes an average of 4 mins per client, even though the queues are long they will be able to be serve fast,” he added.
The DCC said Westlands Sub-county whose target is 584,392 as of yesterday had registered 215, 947 people
In her remarks, Ms. Patricia Awori, the daughter of former VP Awori said she is impressed with the service and the speed with which the process is being done.
“I have been hearing that people are kept waiting endlessly and that those conducting the exercise did not know how to operate the equipment, what Ihave seen is different,” said Ms. Patricia.
She called on people who have not registered not to fear the exercise but go for the huduma namba as the process takes a short time.
Family members of the VP and workers were also registered.
