Nominated Mandera County Assembly member Jimaldin Adan Ahmed has written to government asking for the opening of a Huduma center in Mandera.

In a letter dated January 29, the outspoken nominated MCA for the youth detailed the rigorous process area residents go through to get services their counterparts in the rest of the country access easily courtesy of the Huduma centers.

“a citizen who loses his identity card is subjected to a challenging, tiresome and bureaucratic application process and unnecessary delays that sometimes drag on for your” reads the letter in part.

“Application for a duplicate ID card is much more difficult and rigorous than a new application” it added.

Jamal’s plea comes at a time when the government is rolling out the initiative which has brought essential government services under one roof to the remaining counties.
