“President Ruto: 80% of Government Services Now Digitized, Transformation Underway”

President William Ruto has announced significant progress in his administration’s efforts to digitize government services in Kenya.

speaking during the opening of the Connected Africa Summit 2024 in Nairobi’s Uhuru Gardens, Ruto expressed satisfaction with the achievements so far.

He emphasized that his government had committed to making technology the cornerstone of Kenya’s development, and this vision is being realized.

Ruto stated, “As a country, we made a very conscious decision that technology is going to inform the way we transform our country.

We set out in the last one and a half years to put all government services on a digital platform.”

He further revealed that they are already 80% through with this goal, indicating significant progress.

In December last year Mercy Wanjau, the Secretary to the Cabinet, had announced that over 16,000 state services were available on the eCitizen platform. She had instructed all Cabinet Secretaries to ensure that all government services are available on e-Citizen by December 31.

Wanjau also emphasized the importance of raising awareness about e-Citizen and compliance within their respective departments.
