Lugari MP Nabii Nabwera has hinted at plans to set up WiFi at designated places in the constituency in what he says is a move to open the region to the digital world.
The area MP, during a public participation forum at Mlimani in Mautuma Ward, said he was planning to install WiFi routers at Panpaper and Makutano shopping centers.
The MP said the shopping centers are on the main Seregoi-Panpaper-Makutano-Kiminini road and can easily open Lugari to the rest of the country.
“The world is moving very fast; everything is going digital. We want to install WI-FI so that our people can get services as fast as possible and ease congestion that has been seen in the offices in past years,” he said.
Residents who spoke to the Western Kenya Times applauded the legislator, saying it was a positive move towards development.
“It is a good move for us; it will make our work easier. We will not travel to far places in search of services,” a businessman at Makutano Market said.
Another expressed doubt about the promise of the MP.
“Wafanye ndio tutamke kitu wanasiasa ni wanasiasa,” he explained.
