WEBCAST TODAY: Huduma Number/National Identification Management System hearing @thekhrc @NubianRights @HakiKNCHR #HudumaNamba

livestreamThe Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC), the Nubian Rights Forum and the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNHCR) in Kenya have gone to court to challenge the implementation of the National Integrated Management System (NIIMs), aka Huduma Namba, in light of the fact that requisite data protection legislation does not exist. The petitioners argue that the system will create a fertile ground for mass surveillance and will infringe on the right to privacy for citizens since some of the data collected is unnecessary. NIIMs is similar to the Aadhaar system in India. Today, Wednesday 24 September 2019, is Day 3 of the court hearing.
