Agreed, NEMIS is working.
Teachers reject Nemis, cite identity code error
By OUMA WANZALA, TUESDAY MAY 21 2019
But the problem, it appears, could be beyond the administrators of Nemis as
it is created by the uploading of birth certificates that share numbers,
meaning it could be at the Immigration department, under the Ministry of
Interior and Coordination of National Government.
The Nemis system automatically flags cases of identity duplication and
blocks the disbursement of money to the affected schools. Principals argue
this is unfair to legitimate students and now want the ministry to carry
out a physical count of students to weed out any suspected ghost learners.
Matiang’i raids births register office in crackdown on cartels
By AGEWA MAGUT, FRIDAY OCTOBER 25 2019
Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i on Friday sent packing two
senior officers at the Department of Civil Registration in an impromptu
raid meant to crack down on corruption cartels in the issuance of birth
Dr Matiang’i also ordered the immediate arrest of brokers behind the
multi-million shilling corruption industry at Bishop’s House, where the
department is based.
He assured Kenyans that the process of getting a birth certificate in Kenya
will be corruption-free and much smoother by next week.
Dr Matiang’i’s visit caught the department’s bosses unawares and he found
long queues, unmanned and unmarked counters as well as computers in disuse.
The situation prompted him to direct all personnel in charge to work over
the weekend to ensure smoother processes by Monday.
“People should be coming in and immediately they should have someone verify
that all their documents are in order,” CS Matiang’i said during the
“After that, they should hand in their documents, get a ticket and go home.
After about a week, they should get a SMS telling them that their
certificate is ready to be collected.”
