The National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) registration in Moyale Sub-county of Marsabit County is experiencing some delays following slow functioning of the NIIMS gadgets as the turn out increased.
The Assistant Deputy Commissioner 1 (ACC 1), Victor Wanjohi told KNA on Tuesday morning that there were some challenges being experienced in some parts following poor network coverage in some areas affecting the server systems as the process got to its sixth day.
The NIIMS popularly being referred to as Huduma Namba registration, which was officially launched on April 2 by President Uhuru Kenyatta in Machakos county and other leaders countrywide, took off on Wednesday in Moyale sub-county.
Wanjohi appealed to the residents to turn up in large numbers, saying the registration process starts from 7am to 5pm daily, including weekends and public holidays for the 45 days.
“The Huduma namba will be of great use to all Kenyans because one will not need to carry a lot of documents,” Wanjohi said, adding that they were encountering some challenges.
He expressed optimism that the turn out will be as targeted because all the stakeholders, including community and spiritual leaders had been incorporated in the mobilization process.
Wanjohi urged residents to feel free and turn up for the registration adding that the government programme went through all the necessary legal requirements and no one should fear that there was something sinister the government was after.
