Kenyans have given their reactions to the government’s unpopular directive rehearing Huduma Namba registration. The Kenyan government, through the Communications Authority of Kenya on Thursday announced plans to switch off sim cards of those who fail to register for the famous Huduma Namba.
Kenyans took the discussion to social media, angrily reacting to the infamous directive. While others faulted the directive, others went as far as quoting a court ruling prior to the launch of the exercise.
A Kenyan court ruled that Huduma Number registration was not a mandatory exercise and should not have deadlines compelling Kenyans to register.
A local television’s tweet that sparked the social media reactions read as follows:
“Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has said that the government will switch off phone sim-cards whose owners fail to register for Huduma Namba by May 18,“
