Chamisa revealed that under the e-government initiative his ministry allocated laptops to all ministers and permanent secretaries as a way of encouraging communication.

“I have given all the ministers and permanent secretaries laptops. We want them to appreciate how beautiful it is to have the internet,” he said.

Chamisa, who declared that by 2015 Zimbabwe be an information and knowledge-based society, said:

“We want to make sure that we elevate our platform from the paper mindset. Certain ministers, permanent secretaries and other government officials do not feel that they are doing work if they don’t have piles of paper on their desks. We have to migrate from those very traditional ways of communicating.”

He added that ICT could become the catalyst for socio economic growth, thereby making the country a hub of information technology (IT).
