The enrollment of individuals aged 70 and older into the Inua Jamii program commenced on Friday in various regions of the country.
The first day saw a substantial number of elderly individuals turning up at designated administrative offices.
In Ol-Jororok, Nyandarua County, there were calls to ensure that beneficiaries receive their payments through mobile phones, which would alleviate the inconvenience of traveling to their respective banks for withdrawals.
In Garissa County, Deputy County Commissioner Solomon Chesut encouraged applicants to ensure they have the necessary documentation before participating in the process.
A similar initiative was underway in Nakuru, Kisii, Kirinyaga, and Kajiado counties.
Currently, the Inua Jamii program provides support to more than 1.2 million Kenyans, including 353,000 orphans and vulnerable children, 833,129 elderly citizens, and 47,000 individuals with severe disabilities across the country.
