The characteristic queues for the last minute Kenyans, which prompted President Kenyatta to give a one week window period last Friday, were missing.At registration centres in Nairobi and across the country there were only a handful of people on the queues.People trickled into the General Post Office (GPO) Huduma Centre and Nyayo House, which were the two major registration centres in Nairobi, a stark contrast to the chaos witnessed last week.


Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna said on Thursday the government will over the next four-months verify the data and open a window for rectification of errors.

Once the process of cleaning the data is completed, he said, the Huduma numbers will be sent to residents through their mobile phones while those whose data will have errors will be required to register again.

He said 36 million Kenyans had been registered by Thursday.
