Alot of speculation is going around as to the real reason as to why we must register for the Huduma number.

However, no matter what may e said, we need to get the number. The reasons are so as to be able to receive any government services. This includes ID number, passport registration, driving license renewal, etc.

This week, they will be at Mount Kenya University in Thika to register any and all Kenyans, foreigners included.

What exactly is the Huduma number?

Huduma Namba is a National programme for the mandatory registration of all Kenyan citizens and registered foreigners resident in Kenya that was established by the Amendment of Registration of Persons Act Sec. 9A.

Huduma number requirements

When going to register for the Huduma Namba one will be required to carry an identification document that can either be a birth certificate, ID card, driving license or the Kenya Revenue Authority PIN for you to be registered.

Mass registration

The mass registration will be free and Kenyans aged six years and above have been asked to register. 

If you haven’t yet registered, the deadline is May 17th 2019. So you better get cracking!
