One of the country’s social analysts has called on the Malawi government to learn from other countries on Information Communications Technology (ICT) development.
This follows a report by the Uganda based Collaboration on International ICT Policy for East and Southern Africa (CIPESA).
The report ranks Malawi as having the poorest ICT penetration amongst the ten South East African countries.
The analyst, Lucky Mbewe said Malawi should adopt ICT techniques from successful neighbouring countries.
“Its high time the country wakes up and start working towards the things that will benefit the masses,” he explained.
Mbewe said government should unearth potential talents in young people in ICT related issues and market it wisely globally.
CIPESA study was conducted in Botswana, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
