The Kenyan government is launching an online platform to allow Kenyans living outside of the country to access government services.
The Daily Nation reports the platform will be ready by the end of the year and will be a one-stop point for all government services for Kenyans in the diaspora.
“There are a number of things that the diaspora wants the government to do for them – things like access to passports, national IDs, KRA PIN numbers and certificates and certificates of good conduct, among other vital documents,” said Zachary Muburi, director of the Diaspora and Consular Affairs Directorate, who was speaking at the commissioning of the Kenyans Diaspora Expo to be held in New York, United States (US).
“We are putting in place structures to ensure easier accessibility of these services. This is being done through the soon-to-be-launched diaspora web portal.”
