President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta on Tuesday became the first Kenyans to receive their Huduma Namba cards.
The cards were presented to the President and his wife by Attorney General Paul Kihara
In a short ceremony presided by Interior CS Fred Matiang’i, the President also handed sample cards to ten other Kenyans at the Gusii Stadium in Kisii County.
CS Matiang’i clarified that the cards issued were just a sample as a Data Commissioner was yet to be appointed to approve the distribution of the cards.
The Data Commissioner post was ordered by the High Court after a suit was filed against the Huduma Namba registration exercise
