Kenyans on social media have come out to express mixed reactions after the government proposed a Bill that will deny Kenyans without Huduma Namba access to crucial public service.

If the proposed Bill is passed into law, Kenyans who did not register for Huduma Namba will; not register certificates for marriages, not operate back accounts, not register phone numbers, not access public healthcare, not access a passport, not register as a voter among other fundamental activities and requirements of a citizen.
