The outspoken Moses Kuria has come out criticizing the government for the failure of using the much-hyped Huduma Number in tackling the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Huduma Number which the government directed each and every other Kenyan to get has every other information in regard to everybody in the country but in a way, the government can’t seem to use it in a time like now.
Moses Kuria questions that.
“updates to tell us how they have utilized Huduma Namba data to assist in mapping out patients, contacts or people who need economic & social protection. In the USA they have now finished sending US $ 1,200 (Ksh 126,000) to every adult and US $ 600 (Ksh 63,000) to every child using data from IRS (Their equivalent of KRA).” Moses Kuria said in part.
Moses Kuria is somewhat speaking for the people who were forced to get registered with Huduma Number and how the government is not doing anything to help out all Kenyans.
“Congress is meeting later today to approve the second and third tranches of a similar amount.”
“In Kenya even if we were to get the money to give to our citizens we have no data. So I am appealing to Mutahi Kagwe to appear alongside Fred Matiangi in tomorrow’s briefing so the latter can explain how Huduma Namba which cost us Billions is helping us at this time. I will do my part and raise this issue in parliament”
