Invitation: Public Participation Forum on Digitisation of Citizen Services

Great leadership from Kenya on the ICTs for governance front from the GOK
and Kenya in general. I am delighted and proud to be associated with this
history in some small way.

I agree with Twahir and wonder if KICTANet is not the right group to mount
active pressure on the GOK to do as he is suggesting above, i.e. ‘ *avail
the opportunity *
*across the country or hold virtually where others may be able to
participate from all over’.*

In the same vein, I saw this piece and thought it might be interesting to
some on this platform;
I wonder what you think about it.
