On Tuesday5TH and Wednesday6TH, the county government hosted the 6thedition of the KIKAO KIKUU usually steered by the Communications authority of Kenya.
During the two day program, various businesses with lots of interest in ICT as well were invited to exhibit and let the general public consequently have a say on their products and services
The morning hours were mainly exhibition sessions followed by general discussion segments in the afternoon.
Later on Kikao kikuu team held a panel forum which was more or less a faceoff between the common mwananchi and various stakeholders at the forum. Mr. Ronald Shako-the governorâ€™s chief advisor and one of the panelists assured the delegates that in his capacity and during his foreign visits, he was doing his best not to undersell Taita Taveta County in regard to ICT development
In the final hours of the afternoon Safaricom and Airtel got a platform to be praised and criticized in equal measure by the common man in regard to their services
In their responses, the various telecommunication heavyweights went on consoling the affected. Airtel for instance went on assuring the citizens that cases of roaming especially at the TAITA TAVETA COUNTY border had come to an end and that its 4G network was already up in most regions of the county.
Other citizens went on making inquiries on the benefits of the Digital migration and also cases on signal loss of which all the involved parties noted that there was work in progress from their end to ensure the common mwananchi receive utmost services.
With the session getting heated up, the moderator of the day, the media maestro, Uncle Fred Obachi Machoka had quite a task calming down the session.
Upon culmination however, the governor realized the forum time seemed inadequate for the citizens to belt out their grievances and thus promised not to wait until another Kikao kikuuto give the citizens a platform, but instead invited all the concerned powerhouses uses for a more or less similar forum sooner than later
The guests later on had lunch at the prestigious Voi wildlife lodge courtesy of Communications Authority of Kenya.
