09/23/2004, Opollo Opondo: KBC
The Kenyan government has enlisted the support of its Canadian counterpart to help realize its electronic-governance strategy.
Making the announcement Tuesday, information and communication minister, Raphael Tuju said that the Canadianís experience and expertise would help in guiding the progress of the scheme.
The e-governance strategy deployment is already underway, with some government buildings like the Treasury already set up.
It is hoped that the program will ease and quicken the delivery of public service to the people using Internet-based facilities like voter registration and tax collection amongst others.
Tuju said the government had signed a letter of intent with the government of New Brunswick, a province in Canada, following his visit there last month.
He added that though the government had already identified key points of the strategy, the exercise would be done in phases.
