Govt to create online public platform for advertisements

08 October 2013, 17:11 Kelvin Wanjohi

Nairobi - The Cabinet Secretary for ICT, Dr. Fred Matiang'i has said that the government will create an online platform where Kenyans will be able to access any information from the government, including advertisements, tenders and notices.

Matiang'i was speaking during an ICT forum organised by CISCO, an IT company where he said that the government will push for amendment of a clause in the constitution that indicates that any government institution must advertise through two national daily newspapers, in order to create space for private and other media institutions to get an equal share in government programmes.

He said that the government was committed to enhance the Public Private partnerships which aim at spreading the broadband connectivity in the country for all Kenyans to access information as well as bridging the gap between the urban and rural population.

He further noted that Kenya was the third country in Africa to embark on a national broadband strategy and is fast tracking the laying of fiber optic cables, which will in turn harness the youthful talents in the villages who lack exposure.

“We will integrate data assets to create a large mass database as well as institutional consolidation. The government agencies are working with ICT firms and we welcome firms that will also improve the current security systems in the country,” He said.

The Cabinet Secretary also retaliated that the government is intensifying its fight against terrorism, saying that if only a better and well managed security system was in place, it would be hard for criminals to smuggle dangerous weapons to the country.
