Kenya launches online marriage services

The Kenyan registrar of marriages has announced the launch of online marriage services in response to the reduced office activities following the COVID-19 pandemic. Those seeking to get married will now be required to apply and pay for the service using the online gateway known as e-citizen. They will then be given an appointment for the physical exchange of vows through the same platform. Marriage services were suspended in mid-May after an influx of couples seeking to register their unions.
