You can download this document by clicking here. by Dr Johnson Nkuuhe, Member of Parliament, Uganda.

Dr. Nkuuhe is always a pleasure to listen to and his presentation really did go through a number of issues very relevant to Kenya and especially in linking the role of ICTs as a development enabler. Among some very interesting comments from his presentation was at the start where he reiterated the fact that ICT was not just about computers or services, it has more to do with knowledge and content upon which technology enable their utilization.

It was also very interesting to hear him go through Uganda’s process in ICT policy formulation and highlight some key lessons that those going through the process should take heed. He concluded with a number of suggestions among them the need to share knowledge and information among key stakeholders in nation building.
