Thursday 13 July 2017 | 15:43 CET | News
Kenya's Kwale County is set to launch free street Wi-Fi in Baraza Park and Ukunda and an online services portal, KwalePay, following an investment project by Liquid Telecom in high speed internet to the county, which is one of Kenya's poorest. The county is launching KwalePay as a one-stop online gateway to all the county government's services, meaning residents can get business licences, pay land rent and access council services from their mobile phones, home computers and cybercafes.
