Give your position on the ban on 'old' computers here PDF Print E-mail

10 July 2009 

About the ban on computers, this is the Minister's (Saida Bumba) quote
''Mr Speaker a ban is being imposed on old computers, freezers and refrigerators. However I am extending a three month moratorium to enable goods in transit and in bonded warehouses be cleared. We owe protection of our environment a duty and we cannot relax on this front. I seek your understanding that together, we safeguard our environment or else we shall pay an immense price in the future. The details are contained in the Finance Amendment Bill.''   

Members of the I-network mailing list have come together to develop and present a position paper on the ban of "old" computers announced by the Finance minister at her budget speech. To contribute to this position paper and let your opinion be counted please participate in the following ways:

1. Tell us how the ban shall affect you, your organisation and the country through our survey. (This shall open up to a new external window and website survey monkey)

2. State your position through our online poll (right hand side of webpage). Definitions for the 4 positions (opens new window)

3. Give us your opinion on what you think about the ban and its effect on the country through our blog here

The opinions shall be collected and developed into a position paper to be presented to ICT stakeholders and policy makers in August 2009.
