The Governor yesterday promised Kakamega residents that he would provide free Wi-Fi if they re-elect him in the upcoming General Election.
A year ago, on June 30, ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru made a presentation to Members of Parliament from all 290 constituencies in Kenya outlining that the government was in the process of setting up the necessary infrastructure to ensure free Wi-Fi connections countrywide.
The CS said the roll out of the initiative would be done in liaison with the MPs where each constituency would be supported with four centres in the initial stage.
"This project will transform Kenya and bring the digital dream to a reality. It will bring the youth out of poverty by creating jobs," the CS outlined.
The project receives funding for supply and installation of the equipment components from the National Constituency Development Fund (NCDF) while the Ministry has allocated a total of Sh200 Million for a year's worth of internet broadband services.
Telkom Kenya Limited is collaborating with the government on the initiative and will install the 1,160 Constituency Incubation Hubs in all 290 constituencies.
