Aibu? KOT roasts Education PS Belio Kipsang for receiving printer donation from USAID

Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have shared mixed reactions after the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) donated a printer to the government.

The donation was received by the Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang. He praised USAID for its continuous support towards government support.

The donation caused an online frenzy, however.

The government consistently receives donations from well-wishers and donors.

These include books, face masks, food donations, and sanitary towels, among others.

Incidentally, the printer donation comes days after President William Ruto announced his government was embracing the paperless mode of communication in a bid to cut costs and conserve the environment.

The Head of State chaired his first paperless cabinet meeting at State House in January 2023.

He said that going paperless would enhance service delivery by fostering efficiency and eliminating unnecessary bureaucracy in government.

“Kenyans will be able to access government services from anywhere, from their home or offices, without having to go unnecessarily to government offices and wait in long queues,” he said.

At the meeting, Cabinet Secretaries were each handed a secured portable digital device interconnected and attached to their files, memos and a secure notebook to assist them to take notes in the meeting without leaving the devices.

At least 300 government services have already been digitized with President Ruto saying, “It will be expected of government in every department that we leverage on technology to make government much more efficient.
