He further said that they are expecting an average of 40million Kenyans to have registered at least by end of the exercise. He further noted that Kenyans should not expect the date to be extended further as the exercise comes to a close on 18th May.
The Huduma Namba registration has been ongoing for five weeks now since President Kenyatta launched the exercise. However, there have been mishaps between the government and Kenyans after it was announced that it is a voluntary exercise.
The High Court further barred the government from forcing Kenyans to register. In addition, also barred it from using the data to withhold any services or bar anyone from accessing public facilities.
