Residents of Kabarnet town are set to enjoy free Wi-Fi as a way of embracing ICT to spur development once the necessary infrastructure has been put in place by the County Government.

While officiating this year’s annual Baringo County ICT contest Awards ceremony at Kenya School of Government sponsored by KOICA, Korean based NGO, Baringo County Governor Stanley Kiptis revealed that talks with national government are at advanced stage to set up the facility in Kabarnet town and later extend to major urban centres across the county.

“The world is going digital and we would also want to be part of this positive transformation as we gear towards creating opportunities for our youth in the online platforms that offer both entrepreneurship and employment,” Kiptis said.

The initiative will see residents in Kabarnet town enjoy a 24-hour free Wi-fi. 

This will enable them share information in a bid to enhance transparency and accountability through public participation and create a network among the youth.

While appreciating KOICA and WorldBest Friend for their continued investment and support on digitalizing of Baringo County schools, Governor Kiptis pledged his commitment to adopt the use of ICT in all government departments to improve efficiency in service delivery.

The contest brought together 17 learning institutions  from across the County at Elias ICT center kabarnet, who showcased various ICT skills.
