Nandi County  managed to clear up to 20,000 birth certificates during the Rapid Results Initiative (RRI) period between July and August.

According to the County Commissioner (CC), Olaka Kutswa, this was a great achievement as the country heads to the second phase of Huduma Namba registration.

Kutswa added that a further 25,000 new applications were received during the July 1 to August 8 waiver period.

“We received the applications but processing yet to be done due to lack of printing papers at the government printer. Applicants will have to wait for the certificates which will be ready in due course,” said Kutswa.
