The government, through the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government Dr. Fred Matiang'i, has stated that it will move to Court of Appeal to counter the High Court ruling against Huduma Namba. The High Court's ruling against the biometric system was made yesterday by the legal house led by Justice Jairus Ngaah.

The Huduma Namba was meant to facilitate the process of receiving health services among other benefits. According to reports by Standard Digital, the appeal against the High Court's decision will be filed by the Attorney-General on behalf of President Uhuru Kenyatta's government.

“Interior CS Fred Matiang’i says Government, through the Attorney-General, will file an appeal against High Court’s decision that invalidated Huduma Namba,” Standard Digital posted on their official Facebook page.

The news about the appeal has left many Kenyans talking with most people arguing that there is no need to appeal since the biometric system had no clear benefits to the people. Those supporting the ruling urged the government to respect the High Court's decision. Some people also seconded the move by the government to appeal since a lot of taxpayers money had been spent on its making. Below are some of the reactions from social media users:
