  • Government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna has revealed how Kenyans who enlisted during the mass Huduma Namba registration will receive their new unique identifiers. 

    Speaking on phone with Kenyans.co.ke, Oguna stated that citizens who gave their correct information during the registration process will receive their Huduma Nambas through their mobile phones. 

    He, however, didn't disclose when the new unique numbers would be disseminated.

    "It is for those who gave out actual mobile phone numbers. If you gave a wrong number, of course, it will be sent to that number," Oguna explained. 

    "Everything will be computerised, it will not be done the manual way. The same way you get advice messages from Safaricom. They are computer generated and becomes easier to reach many people that way," he added.

    Kenyans who made errors in the information given to the government during registration, will be required to visit their local assistant chief's office to rectify the mistakes after May 25. 

    “When the mass registration comes to an end on Saturday, what will happen thereafter is the process of cleaning the data; there will be some areas that the data may look same or maybe it was not entered properly.

    “So you may have registered, yes, but in the process of cleaning data, then you’re found to have either given the wrong I.D (national identification) number or the wrong number of your birth certificate, then they would be communicated to go and register afresh,” Oguna announced on Thursday during his weekly press briefings. 

    He advised those who had not registered to do so before the May 25 deadline or be forced to seek out their area assistant chiefs on whose doorsteps the process will be transferred.

    “The only problem with that – and that’s why we’re asking that all of us should be able to take advantage of this window before it closes because there’ll be no extension – is that the assistant chief will have other responsibilities so they’ll not give you priority,” he advised.
