Paradigm Initiative, 2021
This case study documents the lived, rather than representative, experiences of two individuals between October and December 2020, after the deployment of Kenya’s digital ID system. The individuals were selected with gender, geographical and community considerations in mind. The male informant identifies with the Kenyan Nubian community, and resides in Nairobi county, whereas the female informant identifies with the Somali ethnic group and operates in both Nairobi and Garissa counties. This primary research was supplemented with print and digital media information.
