Three weeks ago we spelled out what President Mnangagwa is going to do for the techies in Zimbabwe. So in turn, we asked our Twitter followers what they want President Mnangagwa to do ‘tech-wise’. Here is what they want;
1. We need a strong DIGITIZATION and automation policy to remove some unnecessary bottlenecks in public service centers. I’m thinking of how much better the passport office can become, how birth certificates or id issue can be made better.
2. We need to borrow ideas from countries like Israel for technology in agriculture. They have one of the most advanced irrigation and crop monitoring technologies to guarantee higher crop yields.
Government tendering should move to a blockchain system to enhance transparency.
I would prefer he sets up tech incubators for entrepreneurs. Our school leavers need to learn how to code at a young age so that we can solve our economic problems.W e can learn from Israel or Silicon Valley.
We would love to see rural areas internet connectivity improved
Revise the telecommunications interception bill and respect every individual’s right to data privacy
Free radio waves
There is need to introduce a comprehensive e-Government system
reduce tax on IT related imports, we can’t invest in new tech if we are being restricted by equipment costs,

Govt ministries and departments should have websites that do not crush (Hey

Their data capturing in parastatals must be digitalised.Tired of waiting in long queues to get documents from a mountain of papers aka Data Base
