    Ruto believes Kenya will manufacture cheap African cellphones.

    Published on

    Kenya, according to President William Ruto, will become Africa’s leading manufacturer of low-cost cellphones within the next year.

    Ruto made this statement on Thursday at the Annual General Meeting of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

    Ruto also stated that the potential of the devices being offered at reduced prices has been brought up in conversations with Telecommunications companies.

    To quote the President: “The actual final mile in technology is the gadget, and we are already working with our telecommunications industry so that we can have a smartphone that is going to cost less than Sh5,000; a smartphone that can do all that you want.”

    In his address to the nation, the head of state said his administration is working toward a day when all government services may be accessed online.

    He noted that only approximately 15% of government services are available online now, despite the fact that 80% were promised in their manifesto.
