Untapped Potential of E-governance and Zambia Safari

Zambia is in Africa but when you enter a government office don’t be surprised if you find a desk top computer comfortably humming on top of a table. A note book computer shouldn’t shock you either. The information communication and technology (ICT) has arrived even here in Zambia in Africa!

To what benefit? You can now conduct business easily and fast… Why? E-governance, the digitalisation of government service delivery mechanisms is here. It’s about simplicity of service delivery, morality and integrity in the public sector.

The accountability, the responsiveness and transparency in the discharge of public goods and services have should improve. E-governance will assist in de-bureaucratisation (the bureaucratic pain will be no more) and simplification of government processes and procedures. Visas or investment licences will be like a breeze to obtain.

And a national ICT policy is in the offing… Zambia’s National Development Plan (NDP for 2006 - 2011) is being developed through e-governance. The schools have jumped on to the bandwagon too. There are 700 teacher resource centres countrywide. However, Richard Mwanza of the government’s Communications Authority (CA) acknowledges that the full ICT application is yet to make a mark in Zambia.

But Lusaka City Council (LCC) has made a start. The municipality has embarked on e-governance with the support of United Nations Education Science and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) to pursuit an efficient and transparent governance in Zambia.
