The first Huduma Center Nairobi was launched in 2013 by former president Uhuru Kenyatta alongside then-deputy William Ruto at the Teleposta Building in Nairobi.

Some of the services offered at the centres include the issuance of driver’s licences, national identity cards, and the National Social Security Fund (NSSF).

Other are National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) registration and claims, HELB – Student Loan Application and Repayments, Registration of Welfare Groups, issuance of police abstracts, single business permit and stamp duty assessment among others.

On Monday, a new beginning was marked as judiciary services went live in six pilot Huduma Centres. They include Nairobi GPO, City Square, Makadara, Kibra, Eastleigh and Kiambu. CS Kuria stated that the judicial desks at the centres will be manned by Judiciary staff.
