  1. The online Self – registration portal is not working when it gets to the Documents upload. All the scanned documents required in pdf format, the Id front and back successfully upload but when you get to the KCSE certificate, a pop up states that the Id did not upload successfully…thus one cannot continue to upload the rest of the documents. This process has been dreadful for the last three days. Could the IT check this out please.
