Through an initiative dubbed: “Smart and Sustainable City” solutions, the drive seeks to improve Kenya’s critical incident management and crisis management capabilities.

Speaking during the official launch of the Huawei ICT Road Show Festival yesterday, Huawei Kenya Vice General Manager Mr. Freddie Zhang said smart city solutions will help Kenya build safer and more harmonious urban residential, business and tourism environments to attract investment and increase employment for sustainable economic development.

“Through our investment, we hope that we would complement the government through the ICT ministry to provide all the counties with innovative ICT infrastructure is are foundation of building safe smart cities,” said Mr. Yu.

With Huawei’s focus in Kenya’s county governments, the ‘Smart and Safe City’ solutions are further aimed at enabling counties to connect with each other through an integrated service architecture that allows for information sharing and provides advanced applications and services.

The three-day festival which brings on board over 200 key industry players, will at its end, have discussed development trends and global success stories on public safety in cities and discuss ways to reduce crimes and reinforce city safety through establishing innovative ICT safe city solution.

Since its formation, the drive has helped the government counter the menace of crime rates, reducing incidents by 46 per cent in areas that were covered.
