“The government has opened another window of opportunity to help those who were locked out in Huduma Namba registration because they lacked birth certificates and ID cards,”
Government Spokesperson affirmed.
Oguna noted that biometric registration was a necessity for all Kenyans and he specifically made emphasis on special groups like the youth and elderly persons saying it may not be easy to access vital government services like cash transfers without Huduma Namba.
The spokesman, who specifically touched on Inua Jaamii cash transfers and Ajira Programmes targeting jobless Kenyan professionals, noted that the government was continuously enrolling more beneficiaries to the programs to which more than Sh26 billion had been allocated in the 2019/2020 financial year.
