Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho on Wednesday, September 16, revealed plans to carry out a second mass registration exercise for the Huduma Number.
The PS was speaking at a Nairobi hotel where he held a press conference to issue the announcement.
The window of opportunity for the second mass registration will only be made available for Kenyans who failed to enroll in the initial process back in 2019.
After the second registration the government will also embark on rolling out the Huduma Number e-cards before December 2020.
Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Interior Ministry Communications Director Wangui Muchiri confirmed that the cards will be issued before the end of the year.
“The cards will be produced by the end of the year and that is production not completion, the second registration will be for those individuals who missed out in the previous process.
“Right now I cannot give definite timelines for both the registration and issuing of the cards but more information will be issued soon,” she noted.
