E-government is the use of ICT to promote more efficient and effective government, facilitate more accessible government services, allow greater public access to information, and make government more accountable to citizens.

The Prime Minister of Uganda, Hon. Amama Mbabazi, was the Guest of Honor at the opening ceremony.

This event is being organized by the Ministry of ICT and the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), under the auspices of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organization (CTO).

CTO is an international development partnership between Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth governments, business and civil society organizations. CTO provides the international community with effective means to help bridge the digital divide and achieve social and economic development, by delivering to developing countries unique knowledge-sharing programmes in the use of ICT in the specific areas of telecommunications, IT, broadcasting and the Internet.

E-Gov Africa is a high level event created by the CTO to assist African stakeholders in identifying ways to improve efficiency, effectiveness and transparency of governance through e-enabling. The Forum is acknowledged by all parties, including NEPAD and ITU, as the foremost platform in Sub-Saharan Africa for sharing knowledge and best practices.

This forum will provide participants at the e-Gov Africa 2013 a platform to share knowledge and skills, among other benefits.

At least 200 local and international delegates are attending this three-day highly-interactive forum including Cabinet Ministers and senior government officials from the Commonwealth member states, Policy makers and regulators in the ICT sector from member Commonwealth countries, e-Government implementing agencies, Operators, technology providers and industry players such as ZTE and Nokia.

There will also be academia and consultants from across the Commonwealth, as well as from France, Spain, Germany and USA.

Among them the National Information Technology Authority-Uganda; e-Government Directorate of Kenya; E-Government Agency of Tanzania; Agence de l’Informatique de l’Etat of Senegal and Digital Economy Department of Gabon, and the Office of the President and Cabinet (Zimbabwe), are some of the agencies and institutions expected to attend.

According to Uganda Communications Commission boss Godfrey Mutabazi said the conference is in tandem with the mandate of the Ministry of ICT, which is “to create a knowledge-based Uganda through the use of efficient application of ICTs to promote national development and good governance”.

“To-date, we are promoting the use of ICT in the country through the number of projects supported by the UCC and NITA-U.”

As a member of the Commonwealth, Uganda is automatically a CTO member. The Uganda Communications Commission represents the country at CTO events. In 2008, Uganda was elected chair of the CTO Council (2008-09).

The elections took place during the 48th CTO Council Meeting held in Abuja, Nigeria on October 9-10, 2008. Accordingly, Uganda was at the helm of the new Executive Committee representing both the public and private sectors in ICT.

Mutabazi said E-Government in Uganda is in the formative stage of development.

“The key challenges facing the implementation of e-Government in Uganda include creating access, internal efficiency and human resources development. However, with advances in technology improved access needs to be created for Ugandans, particularly in rural areas. We are basically addressing this through the Rural Communications Development Fund (RCDF) – a universal access programme run by UCC,” he noted.

He added: “Government’s current plans include improving public access to government services, through public information terminals in post offices and multi-purpose community centres, and to provide streamlined government services online to present government as a single entity to consumers of its services.”
