Let me quote the article:-
“CS Mucheru, who was speaking at the HPC Forum
University USIU Africa in Nairobi. According to Mucheru the electioneering
period had brought up several issues which needed to be addressed
especially the unsubstantiated reports of alleged IEBC hacking by the NASA
team which was sent to over 200 countries and embarrassed the country
because the claims were unfounded. It would not have been so if the
government had credentials of such individuals said Mucheru.
Mucheru’s latest stand by the CS shows the ICT Practitioners Bill 2016
originated from the ICT Ministry and was not a private members Bill taken
to parliament by Leader of Majority, Aden Duale. Opposing the bill, the CS
had said the bill, if enacted would hinder the growth of tech innovations
and development in the country.
Let’s address this issue with maturity and a sense of what’s good for this
1) Instead of the CS issuing ‘Roadside’ declarations on such an important
matter and reducing it a NASA/Jubilee thing shouldn’t he be talking to the
industry and finding the best way possible to advance the ICT Industry’s
skill sets? This is NOT about politics.
2) The CS should know that he needs to serve the people of Kenya. His title
is CIVIL SERVANT.
3) The community should be open to engaging the government on how best to
ensure we don’t have ‘quacks’ in the industry. A more inclusive forum and
discussions will go a long way is getting things right.
I sincerely hope that CS Mucheru was misquoted and that he will seek wide
consultations on such an important and emotive issue.
