Thank you for sharing the link as well as organising the town hall meeting.
The interactions were great and no doubt such environments will see
“multiskateholderism” thrive, in the interest of the larger community.
@J Walubengo <firstname.lastname@example.org> You articulated the discussion so well.

> From Walu on our town hall last week:
> IN SUMMARY
> – So last week, Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTAnet) hosted what is
> possibly the first town hall meeting with Members of Parliament –
> specifically the Parliamentary Committee on ICT.
> – More often than not, MPs meet citizens in only two settings – during
> election campaigns and during formal stakeholder engagement sessions at
> Parliament buildings.
> – Participants from media, academia, civil society, private sector,
> youth, etc. asked questions and shared ICT experiences and subsequently got
> honest feedback from MPs.
> – It was evident that this sort of meetings with parliamentary
> committees in charge of various sectors should be encouraged and
> Best regards
