How i was assisted to get birth certificates

My name is Hussein Mohamed I was born 40 years ago and lived in Garissa town all my life, I’m currently a tuk tuk driver operating within central business district for the last five years. While I own citizenship documents including Identity Card and Birth Certificate which I got with so many difficulties, I have been on constantly worried about my four children and how they can acquire these important documents. My agonizing issue was also the introduction of the National Education Management Information System (NEMIS) which required that every child should be enrolled in school with birth certificate; I feared that my four children will be left out in the process. I came to learn how Haki na Sheria with collaborations with civil registration officers have been helping people acquire birth certificates and also make follow up to speed up the issuance of the same, this is because there was high demand of the documents. I decide to inquire if I can also be assisted in getting the crucial documents for my children at their offices. After discussions on how I can get the document for my children I was required to get all necessary documents needed to register for the registration of birth certificates. I came next day to the office with all what was needed where I was assisted by Abdinasir to file in the forms, one of the paralegal who helped on what steps should be taken and why I should avoid involving anyone else other than government officials conducting the registration process. I was then accompanied to the registration offices where my documents was filed without any much difficulties where I was then to go home and be coming to the office to confirm if they are ready. Surprisingly, the certificates were ready for collection after my first visit to the office two weeks after filing the documents. its always better to have such kind of offices in our midst to be bridging the gap between members of the public and government official offering services such as birth certificates and Identity documents which has also been most difficult
