This is my statement.
1. MANDATORY STATUS OF HUDUMA NUMBER
a. The stated purpose of the Huduma Bill, which is “to promote efficient delivery of services,” is contradictory, because access to health and education are inalienable human rights, both under the United Nations Charter for Human Rights and under the Bill of Rights in the Constitution of Kenya (2010). Therefore, the respect of these rights cannot be made conditional upon bearing a document of the state.
