830 cases on the Botswana Speaks platform!

Since April 2013, constituents from Nata/Gweta, Boteti North, Maun West and South East South have been using the Botswana Speaks platform (U-Speak) to share issues, opinions or to request information from their Members of Parliament.
Botswana Speaks gave a chance to Members of Parliament from those four constituencies to receive input and to reply directly to them via the online platform or via SMS! At the end of the pilot (March 2014) there were 830 cases on U-Speak!

 


The initiative has raised citizens’ awareness on the role that the Parliament plays as an institution and on the role MPs play as representatives. Constituency meetings that took place during the pilot phase have helped to get a feel of people’s concerns and excitement on the implementation of such project.
