The countrywide roll-out of the National Integrated Identity Management System (Huduma Namba) registration has stirred various reactions in the country.
Those who support the initiative have called it a positive step towards fighting crime, managing personal data and weeding out ghost workers.
But circles opposed to the initiative say that the Government has no clear-cut private data protection laws to operationalise the Huduma Namba registration without assuring against the breach of security which could find private and sensitive data in the wrong hands.
Some Christians have sensationally claimed that the Huduma Namba this could be the fulfilment of satanic code 666 written about by Apostle John Revelation.
Protus Walubengo a church leader in Kitale spoke to Mkarimu Media through phone saying he does not trust the process.
According to him the initiative is aimed at recruiting people into satanic ways and registering people with the number 666.
“I also feel that this process is collecting people’s information which will facilitate in the rigging of votes come 2022,” he adds.
Another clergy said he could not figure out the thin line on the difference between the National Identification Card and the Huduma Namba.
On Tuesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta explained that there was no connection between biblical prophecy and the number.
“There is no connection between the Huduma Namba and the 666. The NIIMS is only rolled out in Kenya, and as a matter of fact, it will not be used to control buying and selling so that those who dissent are persecuted,” President Uhuru said.
“Do not allow to be led astray by others. I was shocked the other day by religious leaders saying that this number is demonic. surely. The devil and identification how are they linked? my God! Please let us not use the privileged positions we have been and the respect our people give us to dispel lies. The number is to make it easier to give Kenyans the services they need,” angry Uhuru added.
According to Revelations 13:18, the 666 is a number of a man. The author further explains that understanding it calls for wisdom and understanding.
The text reads: “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” (Rev 13:18).
The 666 is a title attached to a civil-religious power described as the Beast power in Revelations 1:1-3. In biblical terms, a beast power refers to a kingdom and that is explained in Daniel 7:23.
In Revelations chapter 13, which brings the 666 code into question, there are two beasts spoken of. There is the first beast (Kingdom) in Revelations 13: 1-4 ‘whose deadly wound was healed’ and the whole world wondered after it. The wounding as explained in the bible points to the dissolution and restoration of the same power i.e stripping of civil power and giving it back.
Now, this first power had dominated the world before its defeat and came up with sets of laws clumping down on fundamental rights, such as freedom of worship through Sunday laws.
The first power is described as deceptive and inventing its mark through false system of worship.
In Revelations 13: 11 comes the second beast, a civil power symbolised with a ‘lamb with two horns but speaking like a dragon.’ The second power having come into place is depicted as humble but deceptive.
The bible records that it is the second global power that will cause the world to receive the mark of the beast-which is the first power-whose title is symbolized by 666.
Revelations 13: 16 reads: “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, (17) so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name (16). So that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
The mark spoken of is a false system of worship established by the first power, a European power, which becomes a mark once backed by legislation.
The power, civil-religious power will use the second power, believed to be American power to push forth its agenda of leading defiance against God establishing false system of worship.
Now the 666 is a number assigned to the antichrist for 6 is a number of a man and infers to servitude.
Remember man was created on sixth day. Man works for six days and rests on seventh. It is a number of a title assigned to a leader who assumes that office.
For example, if President being the Commander-in-chief of Armed forces would be identified by say 999.
In a nutshell, the 666 is a title of the power (first beast) which will bring a mark of satan and will lead many astray against God.
And, in biblical explanation, there is no inference that Huduma Namba is anything close to 666. Its acquisition being voluntary, Kenyans can choose to register or to avoid it for their own reasons but not on the premise that it is the mark of the beast, or 666.
