People who refuse to register for Huduma Namba will be blocked from accessing bursaries, Westlands Member of Parliament (MP) Timothy Wanyonyi has warned.
According to the legislator, by 2020, all government services including constituency development funds programs will be channeled through only huduma number.

Westlands Member of Parliament Timothy Wanyonyi has said residents who fail to register for Huduma Namba risk missing a chance at securing bursaries.
"Let us all get this Huduma Namba, because from next year you will not be able to get your bursaries," warned Wanyonyi.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga has also been at the forefront campaigning for the importance of timely registration.
The Huduma Namba registration is meant to capture biometric data of all Kenyans and foreigners living in the country.
The biometric data required include: fingerprints, retina and iris patterns, earlobe geometry, voice waves and hand geometry.
As earlier reported, Kenyans aged six years and above are all eligible to register for the Huduma Namba.
This will in turn help in the facilitation of government services to the people.
