Belgium has given a 10.5 million euro (Sh1.2 billion) loan for installation of communication technology infrastructure in both the county governments and the central government.
The funding will see voice and data communication equipment and connectivity installed in the counties and ministries in phase 2 of the e-government move.
These include connection to the National Optical Fibre backbone infrastructure, video-conferencing facilities, telephone services among others.
The county connectivity project phase one is due to be completed by the end of this month. The project design was to create access to the Nofbi in 28 counties. Those counties will now have a a large area that is covered by private wireless connection.
The e-government Private Network Control Center for the 47 counties and the 18 central government ministries is located in the Treasury building.
'These are key reforms in the information technology which are in line with the constitution and public finance management act,"
Belgium also advanced a 16million euro (Sh1.6 billion) loan for rural electrification. The money will be used to construct a 85km electric power distribution line in the Sondu-Homa- Bay Kisii area. Both loans have a 10 year repayment period.
