Finally, Uhuru urged Kenyans to take advantage of the extension and avoid the last-minute rush.
“I have observed with concern the long queues formed during these final days of the exercise. It brings to the fore an ingrained last-minute rush habit that holds us back. Nevertheless, Kenyans are determined to register for their Huduma Namba. Hence, I have obliged to the numerous requests to give them an opportunity to do so,” he added.
