It stands for National Integrated Identity Management System
It has been christened huduma Namba. That the simplest name. You get registered and geven the number.
The NIIMs will integrate all the person’s identity data e.g birth certificate, NHIF no., National ID, e.t.c.
The number will be incorporated into the government system. It will be used in most all the government institutions to access public services. In other words you won’t get the following benefits in kenya without the huduma Namba.
- Food security (access to subsidized farm inputs such as fertilizers, seeds)
- Affordable Housing
- People With Disability (PWD) benefits such as tax exemption, late retirement
- Affordable healthcare through NHIF;
a. Free maternity services (Linda Mama)
b. Free kidney dialysis services
- Access to AGPO for women and youth
- Transport services through Driving Licence
- Education services through NEMIS (Free primary and Secondary Education, bursary)
- Cash transfer for the elderly
- Get employed
WHO WILL BE REGISTERED?
All Kenyan citizens and foreign nationals living in kenya. Biometrics (fingerprints and photo of facial features) will be taken from age six and above. Below age six Registration will be done without capture of biometrics. The biometrics will be captured later upon attaining age six years
WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR REGISTRATION?
Physical presence and Identification documents (National ID card, Birth certificate, passport or Alien card, any other)
WHO WILL CONDUCT REGISTRATION?
Registration officers who are assistant chiefs and Registration assistants(local youths)
Person identity data will be stored in physical and digital forms. The registration assistants who are local youths have been recruited from every sub-location in Kenya. As a matter of fact there’s training going on in Hola primary school for both RAs and ROs for the ahead mass registration which will be conducted for a period of forty five days beginning on 2nd April 2019 from 7.00am to 5.00pm daily including weekends and public holidays.
Something worth noting is that the Registration for huduma Namba is mandatory. Even after the 45 days the Registration process will continue as people keep on updating their personal identity data.
In the next part I will explain wether the Huduma Namba registration is connected to the apocalyptic 666 in the bible or not and many other things. Otherwise you’re free to drop a question of anything you would love I address in the next part..
