Deputy Governor Daniel Chemno has rallied Uasin Gishu residents to always turn up for public meetings when the government is undertaking any data collection.
Speaking during the launch of Huduma Namba under the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIMS) in Turbo town, Chemno said data helps in government’s plans, including financial allocation.
“It is very important to avail yourself when the government calls for public participation, like this exercise, it allows the government to collect your data for efficiency in service as well as planning,” said the DG.
Under the program, the government intends to roll out a unique number with a single card for every Kenyan, that will be used for all services.
Principal Secretary for Education, Dr Kipsang Belio, also corroborated Chemno’s statements, also adding that the public gets opportunities to present their opinions on their needs.
County Commissioner Abdi Hassan, Ag Chief Officer for Devolution, Wilson Sawe, DCCs and other senior government officers also attended the event.
