The national government has reopened Huduma Namba registration to allow Kenyans who missed out in the last drive to get the crucial document.

Government Spokesperson Cyrus Oguna said the state will deploy two clerks in every sub-location to oversee the exercise.

"Those who did not register because they lacked birth certificates or other documents will be allowed to register," said Mr Oguna.

Mr Oguna made the announcement in a press conference at Marigat in Baringo County.

Life will soon become unbearable for Kenyans without the Huduma Namba if a bill sponsored by the Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i is passed by Parliament.

The Huduma card, according to the bill, will serve as the official government-issued document for identification and conduct of transactions.

Anyone who transacts business without the Huduma Namba will be liable to one year imprisonment or pay a fine not exceeding Sh1 million, according to the bill.
