The mass registration for Huduma Namba will come to an end on Saturday May 18, 2019. Kenyans of last minute are now rushing to get themselves registered following threats from the government.
The government through interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i has insisted that they will not extend the registration when they finally hit the deadline on Saturday.
Matiang’i on Monday said they had registered over 31 million people (65 percent of the total population). He noted that the May 18 deadline for the mass registration phase won’t be extended.
Dr. @FredMatiangi: So far, we have registered over 31 million people (65 percent of the total population). The May 18 deadline for the mass registration phase won’t be extended. The exercise is also going on across our 54 missions around the world, and it will close on June 20. pic.twitter.com/belRIEGEMG

However, there is need for extension of the exercise. With Kenyans coming out in large numbers for the late registration, some of the kits are failing, keeping Kenyans on queues for long hours without help.
There is also a deficit of huduma namba clerks in most areas.
This activity of Huduma needs to be extended. Kitts are not responding to large datas being fed to them. Kenya stand up @FredMatiangi @KaptelTanui @ItsMutai @daughter_wilson @matongo_kevin @ntvkenya @KTNKenya @K24Tv @citizentvkenya #HudumaNamba pic.twitter.com/Q3cR6ntNSH
