Property Ownership under threat


Village Sponsor
The proposed Huduma Namba Bill 2019 will invalidate current ID cards. Now that all assets people own are registered in their ID what will happen to them?

It could mean revalidating the ownership of all the assets by obtaining new documents. Given the high levels of fraud in this country many people will be dispossessed of their assets by criminals who will have access to the asset databases.

This issue should be thought about very carefully.

67 (4) The validity of the identification card issued under the Registration of Persons Act shall cease upon issuance of the Huduma Card under this Act.
