I take this opportunity to share a KICTANet report on_10 years of ICT
policy discourse in Kenya (2007 – 2016)__._
The commencement of this project was premised on the need to identify
the different conversations that had taken place on the KICTANet
platform since 2007.The object was to find out what issues had been
discussed, which stakeholders had been active, and what sort of policy
impact the debates had created.
Notably, over 30,000 exchanges had happened during the period under
review, with 27,000 being on ICT policy._Bitange for President _was
one of the top threads, followed by_TV Signals turned
off _and Vision 2030 and Misplaced Priorities coming third.
Kudos to the following:
* Grace Mutungu (Bomu) for overseeing the project and writing the
* Rosemary Koech-Kimwatu was the lead researcher. She was assisted by
a team comprising Francis Monyango, Joyce Mutheu, Njoki Mwangi,
Umuhany Zuhudi and Dennis Karanja. This team pored the over 30K
conversations and categorized them into internet governance baskets.
* Washington Odhiambo for curating the list and for the data
