Should he prevail in the August elections, Kenyans would have free calls and nationwide access to the internet, according to Deputy President William Ruto.
As the Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential candidate, Ruto said on Wednesday during the opening of the Kiambu County Hustlers Fund that if elected, he intends to accomplish this by implementing last-mile internet access modeled after Jubilee’s last-mile power connectivity scheme.
The last mile for the internet will be introduced, just as there was a last mile for power, according to Ruto.
According to the DP, a nationwide internet grid will be connected to every home in the nation.
“Many people are battling to obtain bundles here and there. Bundles won’t be required to make calls any more. Calls will be free, according to Ruto.
The DP stated that every home, school, market, or social facility serviced by the last mile electricity connection will also receive power and the internet as part of the ambitious internet connectivity program.
For every home to get internet access, we would need to spend about Sh38 billion, according to Ruto.
