“Decisions are made based on the quality of information that one has” Those were the words of the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya William Ruto during the unveiling of the National Government Public Delivery Portal.
Going live by the URL www.delivery.go.ke the website was launched on Monday morning with an aim of informing the public with quality information on what the government has achieved for the period they have been in office.
This follows an earlier announcement by President Uhuru on launching the portal when he addressed the Nation on March 15th 2017.
” Many are the times that most people have found themselves stuck in debates asking what the government has delivered for the period they have been in office. Due to inadequate or lack of information in some instances, the debators end up having zero answers. This is one of the reasons why the portal is being launched” noted Secretary of delivery at the office of the President Nzioka Waita.
In addition Nzioka noted that there are thousand of untold stories among Kenyans, this include building of roads and bridges that never existed at all in the last four years. All this information, he says, is now accessible through the delivery portal
