Public Consultation on National Broadband Strategy for Kenya


Greetings. Seeing that you posted this email on Friday, 8th March, I’m
curious to understand how the committee can expect to get substantive
responses within a week on such a critical piece of document?

I think it’s time this country reviews what it means when the constitution
talks about Public Participation. I know that there are members of the
August House in this list. I challenge them to address this issue. I fear
that government officials are taking us through a ‘tick the box’ exercise
when it comes to public participation.
