On its seventh edition of Kikao Kikuu- County ICT forum, Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) in partnership with the County Government of Kajiado held a one-day forum themed, ‘Connectivity Today and Beyond’. The forum provided a platform for the consumers to have open discourse with CA, government officials and various ICT service providers.

 

In a recent ICT Access Gaps Study released by CA,  some areas in Kajiado County such as Mosiro, Magadi and Oloodokilan still have limited and no access to basic ICT services. In his address at the forum, Hon. Dr. David Ole Ndekianye said that his government welcomes the partnership with CA to ensure that Kajiado County gets access and connectivity to ICT services. “As the County Government, we are delighted to be working together with the Communications Authority of Kenya to ensure that all citizens gain access to ICT services and that technology is adequately deployed in order to ensure efficiency in our service delivery,” he said.

 

The County Ministry of ICT, Gender and Culture aims to deploy technology to the lowest levels so as to allow access to information that will improve quality of life in Kajiado County. It also purposes to establish mechanisms of hosting ICT trainings to empower the community with skills and technical know-how.

 

Tourism is the county’s strong suit with the presence of Amboseli national park that attracts both local and international tourists.  Proximity to Tanzania also positions the County strategically for international trade. Other budding sectors in Kajiado include agriculture, manufacturing and mining.

 

Francis Wangusi, Director General, Communications Authority of Kenya, said that CA is focused on providing an effective platform for dialogue between consumers and service providers. “As a regulator, being guided by the principle of public participation, we aim to ensure that consumers access quality ICT services,” he said.

 

“It is in light of this and as part of our mandate that we have brought together the various industry players to address the prevailing ICT issues in Kajiado County. Our goal is to catalyze connectivity and access to ICT services to the residents of Kajiado County.” Wangusi remarked.

 

The Communications Authority of Kenya initiated ICT County Forums targeted at the 47 counties and dubbed “Kikao Kikuu”.  The forums’ main objective is to create a platform for dialogue between the Authority, County Governments, service providers, consumer organizations, academic institutions and consumers of ICT. The County Governments are also encouraged to leverage on this platforms to showcase their own initiatives in ICT.
