Nakuru residents showed up at various Huduma namba registration centers in huge numbers, as schools reopen for the second term.
Rift Valley region has for far registered at least 5 million people out of the targeted 14 million since the exercise begun on April 2.
Rift regional coordinator Mongo Chimwaga admitted that there were "a few challenges" but said the long queues experienced at someregistration centers were as a result of massive mobilisation done by the team.
He cited breakdown of the registration system as another challenge that had slowed down the process.
“The challenge of technology is a problem we are facing in that during morning hours the systems works well but in the afternoon when temperatures are high, the systems tend to fail,” he said.
But as the deadline for the mass registration approaches, parents thronged registration centers with their children queuing for long hours to access the services.
They expressed anger at the slow pace of the registration exercise saying some of the children might miss to register as they would be away in school by the time the May 18 deadline comes.
