Makueni residents urged to turn out in large numbers to make NIIMS a success

An appeal has been made to the residents of Makueni County to turn out in large numbers to make the registration of National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) a success.
The appeal was made on Tuesday by Makueni County Commissioner (CC) Mr. Mohammed Maalim when he officially launched a five day training of 25 Registration Officers (ROs) and 123 Registration Assistants (RAs) at Makueni High school in Makueni Sub-county.
At least 1057 (RAs) and 228 (ROs) will be trained as from March 26 to 30 to carry out the registration of members of the public in the 9 Sub-counties in the exercise scheduled to kick off in April 2, 2019 countrywide.
“I urge the churches and mosques to create awareness to their members in order to register many people and get the HUDUMA NAMBA that will enable them access government services,” said Maalim.
He called on the RAs and ROs to source for accurate and reliable data from the respondents.
“He urged them to be committed and ensure they provided accurate data that the government can rely on,” said the administrator.
The government is conducting NIIMS to create a national integrated biometric population data base as the simple source of truth of information on a person’s identity for all citizens and foreign nationals residing in Kenya.
