The minister of state for Internal Affairs, Obiga Kania, yesterday clarified that accessing government services shall not require one to possess a national identity card.
Responding queries raised by Bugabula South MP Henry Maurice Kibalya, following reports that persons without national IDs would be denied access to health services, Kania.
Yesterday’s dailies quoted Health minister, Jane Ruth Aceng, stating that a digital system that will allow only those with National IDs to access medicine was in the offing.
But Kibalya said such a move is inappropriate because the identity card process is incomplete and defective.
Kania told parliament that Uganda does not have a policy through which service delivery would be tagged on possession of a national ID.
