08 November 2013, 10:32
Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta is confident the newly-launched e-Huduma services will address service delivery in the country and combat corruption within government.
The online service, which he formally launched on Thursday, will provide integrated services of all government departments, agencies and ministries.
It is also poised to facilitate payments for government services.
Following the e-Huduma launch, locals will now be able to access all government services with much ease at the self-service centre, which will also have standby staff to offer the necessary assistance.
“Kenyans must be placed at the centre of service delivery,” said President Kenyatta during the official launch of the e-government service at the Telposta Towers in Nairobi.
To access the e-Huduma services one will need to key in their identification numbers to retrieve their information from the government database.
All forms of payment for the services will be done through Postapay a brainchild of the Post Office Corporation of Kenya.
Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Anne Waiguru, introduced the programme “Huduma Kenya” project in August 2013 in a bid to enable citizens easy access to government services.
The programme was also launched to help curb the corruption menace in government.
Meanwhile, the President reiterated his administration’s commitment to fight corruption within government.
Flanked by his Deputy, William Ruto, he cautioned government officials against complacency and urged them to commit to serving the people.
