Kenya’s new digital Identity to be different from the Huduma Namba

By February 2024, all Kenyans will have digital IDs to access government services easily. The digital ID project differs from the Huduma Namba because it does not have an associated ID, and the government was considering online identification for Kenyans.

The digital identity will interact with the national information management system. All government-held data about Kenyans will also be linked to their digital identity, and all public services will be availed through digital channels.
