The government will digitize nearly all its services, President William Ruto has announced.

This will transform the delivery of public services and make them more efficient and speedier.

Ruto spoke at a meeting with the Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland, who had paid a courtesy call at State House, Nairobi on Monday, December 5.

“I appreciate the long and close relationship between Kenya and the Commonwealth. There is more scope for two to collaborate,” Ruto said.

Ms. Scotland lauded the government’s plan to have all public services online, saying it will benefit the economy and citizens.

She said it is also crucial that the youth of the Commonwealth member States acquire digital and technology skills.

Those with advanced skills such as coding and artificial intelligence, she said, will benefit from 10,000 certificates given by digital companies Google and Intel.

“The Commonwealth plans to give 200 such certificates to each member State,” she said.

Ms. Scotland is in Kenya for the Innovation Week that begins on Tuesday ahead of Jamhuri Day celebrations on Monday next week.

The theme of this year’s Jamhuri Day is: Connect, Innovate and Inspire.
