For me I’d like the Senate to prioritize and champion two key issues:-
1. An amendment to the law to devolve the USF since clearly this
centralisation has failed. The Counties should prioritise where there are
gaps in connectivity with the assistance of the CA. Based on the findings
then projects are rolled out and linked to NOFBI (National Optic Fibre
Backbone Infrastructure.). It’s a real shame that we are disenfranchising a
large swathe of the country for lack of ICT Infrastructure.
2. eCitizen. This is a great initiative which is going to the dogs. I
propose that the Senate intervene on behalf of the people of the counties
(Read the majority of Kenyans). The Platform was good..Initially..Now you
have to wait till off hours to access the platform. If this is the case in
Nairobi what happens at the county level? I propose the following:-
a) The Senate champions the full revamp of the eCitizen Platform and ensure
full accessibility with limited connectivity. User Experience in G2C and
C2G engagement with ease is critical for citizens to govt services and for
govt to earn revenues.
b) A full review of the Technical Platform that makes eCitizen a world
class G2C/C2G Platform.
c) API thinking/strategy with security a priority to be implemented so
that we have a Platform/Payment agnostic solution.
