Huduma number was introduced in 2019 and is also known as the National Integration Indentity Management System.It is a system that seeks to register all Kenyans under a new database. It is set to replace the National Identity Card which was previously the core in accessing most essential services offered by the government such as job applications.

Government spokesman Cyrus Oguna has revealed when all Kenyans will be required by law to use Huduma number cards as the national Identification Cards(ID) will not be in play. Speaking in Mombasa, Mr. Oguna said about 37million Kenyans were registered for Huduma number.

However, their have been laxity since the government announced that the cards were out and ready for pick-up within county levels,with many people yet to pick their cards. The government also previously revealed that they will soon begin to send phone messages to inform Kenyans on where to pick your cards.

Oguna revealed that by the end of this year(December) the national Identity Cards will be phased out as all Kenyans will be expected to have picked their Huduma Cards.

"By the end of this year,we hope that all 37million Kenyans registered will have received their Huduma number cards as we phase out National Identity cards, "Oguna said.

Kenyans are therefore advised to pick their cards as early as possible to avoid the usual last meeting race that is commonly witnessed in Kenya today.
