The Ministry of ICT and National Guidance is exploring the possibility of compelling all civil servants to acquire a certificate in ICT and computer usage.
Ms Amina Zawedde, the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, says that this initiative aims at promoting the widespread adoption of ICT solutions within government departments.
