I am still waiting for someone in the daily COVID-19 updates to tell us how they have utilised Huduma Namba data to assist in mapping out patients, contacts or people who need economic & social protection.
In the USA they have now finished sending US $ 1,200 (Ksh 126,000) to every adult and US $ 600 (Ksh 63,000) to every child using data from IRS (Their equivalent of KRA). Congress is meeting later today to approve the second and third tranches of similar amount.
In Kenya even if we were to get the noney to give to our citizens we have no data. So I am appealing to Mutahi Kagwe to appear alongside Fred Matiangi in tomorrow’s briefing so the latter can explain how Huduma Namba which cost us Billions is helping us at this time. I will do my part and raise this issue in parliament
