According to Ms Karua, the court hand ordered that there will be no deadline of the registration.Talking to social Media she blasted CS Matiang’i saying,
@FredMatiangi Propaganda! The court order is clear, No deadline on huduma registration. For that reason am not boarding !”

The government has maintained that there will be no deadline for the registration of the Huduma numbers once it closes.
In a press briefing on the progress of the registration exercise, Dr Matiang’ i said 31 million Kenyans have so far registered on the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) to obtain the Huduma Namba.
The Interior CS further said after the mass registration exercise concludes, the registration kits will be handed to the assistant chiefs where anyone who will not have registered can do so.
However, it has appeared as if the registration is compulsory hence Kenyans clashing following a statement by the Chief of staff Nzioka Waita who maintained saying that the huduma Namba was voluntary and not forced, however Matiang’i has continued insisting that it would be hard for one to get some government services without huduma number.
“Getting services any other way is going to be unnecessarily cumbersome for you but if that’s what you prefer it is also a choice for you to make,” said Matiang’i.
