ict practitioners bill is back

The absence of dialogue and relying on media reports is a recipe for
discord. The current views, sentiments and concerns raised in the group are
justified only because there is no dialogue. Kicktanet is part of KEPSA
who we are in constant dialogue even on this topic.
Going forward, the need to dialogue through the agreed channels is key;

So let me try and give a position on where we are;

– I did state that we will need a Practitioners Bill and even clarified
to media it would not be the current one
– There is currently NO Bill in parliament. The last one lapsed and we
would need to start afresh
– The bill identified a need/gap in our sector that requires some
action, especially since ICT is at the heart of the Governments development
agenda
– The Industry was opposed with the method/solutions proposed by the
Bill but not the fact there is a gap
– Other Industries have self regulating bodies and if our sector is to
grow, we need to get organised and set this up. Why should government have
to do it?
– We are exporting our skills regionally and internationally and a need
to standardise and demonstrate our skills is key. This is because we are
not working in isolation, we are competing with other countries and Kenya
must be able to demonstrate consistent and quality skills
