OH NO! If You Lack Huduma Number It Could Mean No Bank Account or Voting!

The Government has proposed a bill that will lock out individuals without Huduma Namba from healthcare services and participating in the country’s election among other essential services.

If enacted, the proposed Huduma Bill, 2019, by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, will see individuals blocked from registering their marriages, register for electricity connection to their homes and enroll into a public educational facility without listing themselves under the National Integrated Identity Management System(NIIMS).

Kenyans will also not sell or buy land as well as operate a bank account without the Huduma number if the punitive proposals by the Government are passed by Parliament.

Those seeking to travel outside the country would also be required to produce proof of registration before they can apply and acquire a passport.

Also, every citizen who has enrolled in the NIIMS shall by default be registered as a taxpayer upon attaining the age of 18 years.

And any individual who wants to transact the listed services without the Huduma Namba will be jailed for one year or pay a fine of Sh1 million while unlawful production of the document will see one spend three years behind bars or Sh3 million fine.

Individuals who give false information or make a false statement when providing information for entry into the NIIMS database will also face a Sh5 million penalty or five years in jail!
