Key  challenge  is the implementation. Its true   there is substantial  progress (Pasha ,Digital villages etc) what  is  lacking is the necessary structure and impetus to actually do  what is necessary.

Subject: [kictanet] Universal Access in Kenya (Is it really working?)


For those of you who missed the ICT/Poverty conference this morning, one of the prominent issues that came out is the fact that Kenya is NOT doing enough to address universal access to communication services! As a result, issues of vulnerability, asset poverty and physical poverty (access to services) persist! Comparative results from our neighbours in East Africa shows that they are scoring on some of these issues.

There's talk of digital villages and the UA Fund - yet there is no delivery! what's not going right?
