The government has ruled out the possibility of extending the Huduma Namba listing which comes to a close on May 18.
Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i on Monday said the mass registration will not be extended but Kenyans in the diaspora have until June 20 to register.
Matiang’i said 31 million Kenyans have so far been registered on the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS).
In a bid to make sure more Kenyans register ahead of the deadline, the government has extended the operation time in Huduma Namba registration centres. This week, registration centres will be open from 6am-6pm.
He reiterated that no one will be forced to register.
