Kibaki says e-government plan back on track

30 Sep 2005

President Kibaki has announced that the e-government policy is currently being implemented in the country, and will improve communications services across the country. As part of the project, the IT market has established a more unified structure in which ISPs have the mandate to open their own gateways, a move which the regulator, the Communications Commission of Kenya (CCK) hopes will improve effectiveness and competition in the sector. The government also hopes to licence new mobile operators, in a bid to increase coverage of rural areas, and will support the integration of e-education in schools.
