Have you registered for Huduma number?
Well, today being the second last day, Kenyans are ready to die queuing for the number. Comedian Jalang’o has been campaigning for this since day one and is happy to see Kenyans are finally turning up to register.
The registration period for Huduma Namba ends on May 18. Jalang’o was forced to call out Joe Muchiri who expressed his doubts saying the number doesn’t make sense.
his is what Muchiri said:
“The part 30 million people influenced by their parents, Jalangoo & Nonini didn’t read I CONFIRM THAT THE INFORMATION INCLUDING BIOMETRICS PROVIDED BY ME IS TRUE, CORRECT AND ACCURATE. I AM AWARE THAT MY INFORMATION INCLUDING BIOMETRICS WILL BE USED FOR GENERATION OF A HUDUMA NUMBA WHICH IS A UNIQUE PERSONAL IDENTIFIER ACROSS THE GOVERNMENT SYSTEMS. I UNDERSTAND THAT MY INFORMATION MAY BE PROVIDED TO AN AUTHORISED GOVERNMENT AGENCY/AGENCIES.
The idea that a Jubilee government that has not provided basic services for Kenyans for the last 6 years is crazy & lying that now it will provide services after U get a new huduma number is a blad fuckin joke. It is sad people have been duped to do it in millions. The big question is who benefits from this project from data collection, to kits supply, to data maintenance etc LOL I mean the whole thing tender for Huduma cards. As a Kenyan U already have a unique identity in many forms from ur birth certificate to ur driving license to ur ID to ur passport to ur KRA pin unique to U so why would U need another one. what can a Huduma number do that ur ID can’t anyway ur data can be used by anyone now & the government has a disclaimer Expect news scams in 2019 where someone can use ur identity to do shit on ur behalf I hope ur Huduma digits makes U get cheaper fuel & groceries. I AM NOT BOARDING.”
Jalas fired back at him saying:
“You don’t have to mention me! You say I have been paid to tell people to take it…yes I have been paid! Very well! Because this is not just another page this is a media platform just like all radios and tv stations have been paid! There are a lot of things in this country [that are] worse, if this huduma namba will kill me, let it kill me! Bro, you don’t always have to drag everyone into your wars! So, which one will kill people first? The whisky you pour in people mouths in clubs or huduma namba? “saitan! Go take huduma namba! Maybe you wanted to be noticed! There you go!
