DAILY POST: This is insane! MIKE SONKO now needs a whopping 1.5 billion to buy software to maintain the data centre in Nairobi’s City Hall Annexe



Monday December 10, 2018 – Nairobi Governor, Mike
Mbuvi Sonko, needs at least Sh1.5 billion to buy software to
operate and maintain the data centre that was launched by President Uhuru
Kenyatta
 in 2017 at City Hall.
According to a report on
the site visit by the ICT Committee of the Nairobi County Assembly, the
centre is still not functional and unless the County Government purchases the
software, it will remain unfunctional.
The
construction of the centre was funded by World Bank to a tune of Kshs1.3
billion and later abandoned under unclear circumstances.
According
to the committee Chairman, Osman Adow
,
at least Kshs1.5 billion is required to purchase VMware and Kshs30 million
for ERP application system in order to support its key functions.
“These
systems are the key components that can enable operationalisation of all the
systems,” stated the ICT committee chairman, Osman Adow.
The
centre was built to support electronic payments and reduce the handling of
cash, enhance collection and 
improve
service delivery.
It
will 
also cover functionalities
such as revenue management, human resource, procurement, citizen services and
specialized departmental functions like fleet management.
