The government have brought huduma cards which will replace the national ID’s. Huduma card will capture the wealth of an individual’s details.
It will be able to capture the information the government require concerning, KRA certificate, NHIF, and NSSF card’s and certificates of good conduct. This project will cost the government Ksh. 6 million, and thus each person will have a unique identification number.
Registration will be for anyone aged 6 years and above, this is unlike earlier when registration was for people aged 18 years and above.
The interior principal secretary Karanja Kibicho said that Kenyans carry loads of data. It will, therefore, be easier if all the data was accessed from a single card (huduma card).
The government will require a digital photo, biodata, birth certificate details, information on parents and guardians, place of birth, county, Sub County, marital status, disability, level of education, employment status and ethnic group.
During the registration process, people will need to specify if they are involved in agricultural activities and also give the size of land they own.
The PS Kibicho said registration started on March 15 Th and it’s on going. There are 50,000 registration officers located in the sub chief’s office country wide. There are 35,000 biometric registration kits which are being used to register.
