ICT is an integral part of the entire social economic transformation process in Africa

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has told fellow Heads-of-State from Africa that the application and use of ICT must be multi-directional  and has to be integrated as part of the entire social economic transformation process.

President Museveni was quoted by The New Vision in his address at the Transform Africa Summit underway this week in Kigali, Rwanda. He said, “”ICT must not only be used to assist agricultural development, manufacturing, in education and the services sector but it must also be used as a sector by itself especially in out-sourcing of jobs’ abroad. It must also be optimally applied in solving challenges in automation of machines, storing and retrieving of information, identifying of persons, in democratic voting systems, sorting out the wage bill and in defence systems”.
