Recently, the Draft Access to Information Bill was finally published by the Government Printer. The Bill is sponsored by Priscilla Nyokabi, MP. A copy of the Bill is available here.
This Bill is an important part of Kenya’s efforts to establish itself as the leading ICT investment destination in East and Central Africa and ICT-enabled business is a key component of its national development agenda, Vision 2030. The use of technology for improved delivery of government services, increased productivity, a world-class business environment and dynamic domestic markets in goods and services that can serve regional and global expansion are major drivers in maintaining a sustained economic growth rate of at least 10% per year for the next decade.
