NAIROBI, Kenya, May 12 – The Kenya Private Sector Alliance has thrown its weight behind efforts to accelerate the adoption of e-government solutions.
In a statement, KEPSA Chief Executive Carole Kariuki says that the private sector supports the ongoing efforts by Lands and Physical Planning Cabinet Secretary Farida Karoney to digitize operations at the ministry that will ease land registration and related services.
Kariuki says KEPSA particularly welcomes the consultative approach the government and sector stakeholders have adopted.
She says adoption of an E-Government model based on practical information technology and payment solutions will enhance efficiency in the public service.
“The minimization of human interaction in specific processes that can be automated is also a key path towards enhancing public service ethics and integrity,” says KEPSA CEO.
“Access to land and security of land titles are fundamentally essential for the achievement of the government’s Big-Four Agenda, particularly establishing industries, building hospitals and affordable homes.”
The Alliance is also encouraging stakeholders to embrace dialogue in areas of disagreement in land-related issues with litigation being the last result.
Digitization has created new digital jobs while allowing efficient access to public services.
