Head of Public Service Felix Koskei has said the government is set to digitize the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) in efforts to curb corruption.
Speaking during the launch of KEBS App, Koskei said the government was trying to enhance efficiency at the organization and protecting Kenyans from substandard products.
“The KEBS App will now facilitate an interactive interface for customers to apply for marks of quality, verify the conformity of products and eligibility of staff members as well as make real-time enquiries and give feedback on KEBS services,” he said.
He said President William Ruto’s administration was committed to the war against corruption.
“Those who participate in corruption will not receive any sympathy from this administration,” he said.
KEBS Acting Managing Director Esther Ngari, on her part, said the App will improve efficiency, transparency, and accountability in KEBS processes.
“We are on a digital transformation journey through the improvement of our ICT infrastructure that will lead to enterprise-wide digitization,” she said.
