“Extended working hours in a number of Huduma Centres, 18 nationally including the one in G.P.O will offer highly sought services from 7AM to 7PM
“Our plan is that every sub-county will have a Huduma Centre but because of the current economic times we are planning to have at least 100 in the next 5 years,” Jumwa added.

“In 2018, the case was remedied by the DCI himself and when we asked for evidence which he promised to avail, was never fourth coming,” Haji said during an interview with KTN News.
He said at the end of the day, his office had to make a decision because according to him, there was definitely something wrong with the manner in which the investigations were done.
“The DCI had an option of changing the investigation officers which he did at that time and we understood that the evidence was availed. But coming to 2021 we saw there was nothing,” Haji added.
