As the Kenyan government commences registration of Kenyans in Diaspora, renowned Kenyan scholar Professor Ngugi wa Thiong’o has been registered at the Kenyan consulate in Los Angeles, USA.
Thiong’o was registered on the National Integrated Identity Management System (NIIMS) together with his wife, Njeri wa Ngugi.
He called on Kenyans in the Diaspora to get listed, saying the new system will provide a foundation on which the country’s transformation will be anchored.
Kenyans living abroad have until June 20 to register for Huduma Namba across 54 missions, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The government has deployed 154 electronic registration kits to foreign missions to facilitate the exercise.
Mass registration in the country closed on May 25 with over 30 million registered Kenyans.
