GOVERNMENT RECORD-KEEPING IN KENYA IN THE CONTEXT OF E-GOVERNMENT

Archives: The Journal of the British Records Association (2013), 38, (126), 22–27.

Abstract

The Kenya government is rapidly introducing digital systems to improve services to citizens. Simultaneously, paper records are being digitised in line with a presidential decree that all government registries must be computerised. The management of the digital records that are being created by new systems, and paper records and their digital surrogates, created during digitisation, has not been systematically addressed. This article identifies the record-keeping regulation and infrastructure that must be improved if the Kenya government is to manage and preserve these records as authentic evidence of government activity over time.
