Huduma Number is the number that was introduced by the Kenyan government to act in place of an Id number. The number was to be used to help Kenyan citizens acquire various go government services as well as use it as a travel document to other east African countries. Every Kenyan citizen above 18years of age was asked to go and acquire their huduma numbers from their nearest Huduma offices.
Today,the Kenyan High court has ruled out that the Huduma Number card is illegal and thus is not allowed to be used by any Kenyan citizen since it conflicts with Data protection Act.
Kenyans on the other hand have reacted to the news differently whereby many are wondering why the top officials in government are coming up with things that are termed illegal.
Below are some of the Reactions.
