Kenyans have been urged to respond to the SMS requiring them to indicate where they want to pick their Huduma Namba cards.
They are also required to collect the cards as soon as possible to avert a backlog.
Spinica Makori—an assistant county commissioner and the team leader in charge of training—on Saturday said those registered have started receiving text messages in an exercise scheduled to end in December.
Makori said Kenyans have a tendency of waiting until the last minute whenever there is such a national exercise. She spoke during two-day training of clerical officers in the issuance of Huduma cards. The officers work under the registration of persons department.
“Now that we have officially launched the exercise countrywide and subsequently trained our officers who will be charged with handling and issuing the cards, what will follow is an SMS to your phone. Kindly respond to it,” Makori said.
“By ignoring the notification, you are not only subjecting yourself to unnecessary inconvenience but also putting pressure on the clerks who have to deal with huge crowds building up in the last-minute rush.”
She also appealed to the clerks to “give the exercise the seriousness it deserves”.
