The mass distribution of Huduma Namba cards begun in Nairobi on Thursday.

According to the Ministry of Interior, the first batch of the cards have already been dispatched to Huduma Centres across the Nairobi Metropolitan area and the 17 sub-counties.

The Ministry is urging Kenyans who receive an SMS notification on the same to pick up their cards at designated points.

The government has already annouced that the current National Identification Card (ID card) will be phased out by December 12, 2021 and replaced by the new cards.

ICT CS Joe Mucheru said last year that by end of 2021, Kenyans without Huduma Namba card will not be able to access any government service.

For those who are yet to register for the number, CS Fred Matiang’i said that there will be another opportunity for mass registration in April 2021, while routine registration will continue thereafter.

All Kenyans above the age ofย  18 years will be required to have the card while children who have attained 6 years will be issued with a minorโ€™s card.

Data from the ministry says that around 38 million Kenyans had registered for the card when the KSh9.6 billion exercise was closing in May last year.

The process, however, was caught up by claims of violating the rights of innocent individuals.
