ICT Principal Secretary Victor Kyalo said there are 700,000 tablets in the country and another 200,000 are being shipped in. Distribution to schools started in October last year.
Kyalo said the Digital Literacy Programme will give 1.2 million tablets to standard one to three pupils. Those in standard four to eight will use computer laboratories to be built in the schools.
The Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology computer assembling plant jointly with POSITIVO BGH Consortium has produced 2,000 tablets. They have already been dispatched to primary schools.
They have also successfully installed the devices in 518 schools in 21 counties and trained more than 4,000 primary school teachers.
