Lack of Birth Certificates a challenge in Huduma Namba registration 

Thousands  of  youth in Nyamira County  who  lack  Birth  Certificates risk being locked out of the on-going Huduma Namba  registration exercise that closes  on Saturday.

Speaking  in  Borabu Constituency on Thursday, Nyamira Women Representative, Jerusha  Momanyi  urged the government to avail the crucial document to enable school children register for the biometric data capture exercise before the mass enlisting programme lapses.

Ms. Momanyi cautioned that many residents were likely to be locked out of the exercise and asked the government to  extend the registration exercise to allow those likely to be locked to register.

“Our county is facing a serious challenge of unavailability of birth certificates and even national Identification Cards (ID) and this is going to lock majority of our residents out of the registration exercise which is ending on Saturday and I’m thus appealing to government officers to hasten the process to ensure this mandatory

documents are availed to avoid piling unnecessary pressure and stress on those still unregistered,” the MP said.

“The government should further consider extending the exercise for some few more days so that nobody is left out of the exercise since it will be difficult to receive government services without the universal number,’’ she added.

Momanyi  was  speaking  in Mote Oguto Primary  School  where she donated a 5000-litres water  tank to the school in  the  first  phase of  water tank donations to public primary schools across Nyamira County.

Among her other initiatives are sponsoring needy students to the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) and purchasing umbrellas for peasant traders for protection during adverse weather.
