The Intentions Were Good: President Ruto"s CS Defends Former CS Fred Matiangi's Project

Although billions of shillings were spent on the Huduma Namba project, which was started under the tenure of former president Uhuru Kenyatta, little has come of it.

Up to 8 billion Kenya shillings are alleged to have been invested in the project, which is now thought to be a ghost one, by the administration of the former president Uhuru Kenyatta. 

The project appears to have been abandoned by both the previous and present administrations, prompting inquiries from Kenyans about what happened to it.

Eliud Owalo, the ICT Cabinet Secretary, is said to have complimented the project that was started by the administration of former President Uhuru Kenyatta this morning, according to the trustworthy reports that we have on hand. 

Dr. Fred Matiang'i, a former cabinet secretary for interior security, led the project until it was finished, during which time millions of Kenyans were persuaded to sign up for the new identity verification system. 

According to the reports we have this morning, the ICT Cabinet Secretary, Eliud Owalo, stated that the project's intentions were good. 

The Huduma Number's goal was to ensure that we have a digital identification so that we could easily facilitate virtual transactions between the government and other parties, and this was a very good objective.
