Will Uganda ever join the top six ICT leaders in Africa?

tumwebaze statement

According to United Nations e-Government Survey, our global rankings as a country in regard to the uptake of IT innovations/services is still not good. Our ranking globally has dropped from the 143rd position out of 190 countries ranked in 2012   to 156thout of  193 countries ranked in 2014. From a continental angle,  Uganda’s  ranking  dropped by six (6) positions down from  position 20 in 2012 to position 26 in 2014. This statistic calls for adoption of  rigorous sector innovations, agile implementation of best IT practices and matching ICT enabling policies. We must not only talk about e-government but we must be an e-government. Government officials must take the lead and break walls of old technologies. Our midterm strategic objective is to join Africa’s top six ICT leaders that is, Seychelles, Mauritius, South Africa, Tunisia and Egypt – REMARKS by Hon Frank Tumwebaze, MINISTER OF ICT and National Guidance at the  INAUGURAL STAKEHOLDERS’ DIALOGUE at Sheraton July 7, 2016
